MCBEP Spelling Bee returns March 13

SoVaNow.com / January 23, 2013
The Mecklenburg County Business Education Partnership will host the 14th annual Mecklenburg County Adult Spelling Bee — where adults “pay to play” — on Wednesday, March 13 at Clarksville Elementary School starting at 5:30 p.m. Money raised at this fun-filled fundraiser will go towards scholarships for high school seniors attending college and for school projects.

The MCBEP is looking for businesses or individuals to register to play. Registration is $50 per team and participants may have up to four persons per team. For those who cannot attend, there is also the option to sponsor a team of other talented students or adults while still promoting one’s business.

There will be three rounds of words for each team to spell, ranging from easy to intermediate to difficult, with team members sitting at one table, able to confer. If contestants misspell a word, the team has the option to buy the word stay in the game. In the final “sudden death” round, buying words is not allowed, so words must be spelled correctly for teams to continue in the competition.

All who enter are assured to have a good time and laugh. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.

To register or to find out more information call the MCBEP Director, Gina Lawrimore, at 434-265-6789 or e-mail .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

MCBEP is a 501C3 non-profit organization and all contributions are tax-deductible.
