The Grandiloquent Adult Spelling Bee is the highest form of spelling combat. Witness word warriors summon their extraordinary knowledge of Greek and Latin root words and complex spelling rules. Awe in amazement as erudite, lexical masters recall the spelling of rarely used, polysyllabic, and commonly misspelled words. Observe accomplished wordsmiths compete in a spelling-fight for the ages. Snicker at the know-it-all that gets eliminated in the first round. The winner will receive $250 and local bragging rights. Must be 18+. No entry fee. Only 50 contestants accepted.

ALL proceeds are donated to the capacity building efforts of local educational opportunities supporting disadvantaged, minority students. 

Hosted by:
Book Harvest, Partners for Youth Opportunity, and SuperLit.
