Grown-Up Spelling Bee

Saturday, May 18, 2019

Compete to support Suffolk Public Schools and win the coveted title of Best Spellers in Suffolk! This is a fun team event to benefit the Suffolk Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that enriches teaching and inspires learning in Suffolk Public Schools.

How does the Bee work? 
Teams of three adults will work together to spell words and compete for the coveted title of "Best Spellers in Suffolk." Teams that face elimination can continue the fun by buying a "spell check" or "stinging" another team by passing on a difficult word. Teams are invited to wear costumes -- the more creative, the better! A buzzing hive of spectators will vote for the best team costumes.
