Cape Fear Literacy Council proudly announces the 29th Annual Spelling Bee for Literacy! The Bee is on Thursday, September 15th at 7 PM at the Terraces on Sir Tyler. We invite the community to share in this fun evening devoted to words!
Admission is FREE and there will be light refreshments, a cash bar, 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 up to 4 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 of up to 4 adult spellers for $400 or become a sponsor at the $500 to $2,000 levels. Friends of literacy can also “Adopt-a-Letter” for a $50 donation per letter of the alphabet.
