Cape Fear Literacy Council and Bee Keeper Sponsor Dr. Kavita Persaud proudly announce the 26th Annual Spelling Bee for Literacy on Thursday, September 19, 2013 at 7 PM at the Pine Valley United Methodist Church (3788 Shipyard Blvd., Wilmington). We invite the community to share in this fun evening devoted to words! Admission is FREE and there will be light refreshments, audience games and prizes, and fun for both audience and competitors. You can help your favorite team with the “Best Cheering Section” prize!
Not the traditional spelling bee, this friendly competition fields teams of three adults who work together to spell words that are increasingly more difficult in each round. The grand prize- in addition to bragging rights – is the engraved, traveling Championship Trophy. Other team prizes include “Best Team Name,” “Best Costume” and “Best Cheering Section” prize! Businesses, civic groups and individuals are invited to register a team for $375 or become a sponsor at the $500, $1,000 or $2,500 level. Friends of literacy can also become a “Honeycomb” sponsor for a $50 donation.
