First annual Brooks Bee, an adult county-wide spelling bee

January 22, 2013

Valdosta, GA— Teams are pulling out their dictionaries, practicing Words with Friends™, and preparing to battle for the Big Bedazzled B. On February 28, Brooks County Certified Literate Community Program and Brooks County Family Connection will be hosting the first annual Community/Corporate Spelling Bee to raise funds for Family Connection programs and GED program support.

The spelling bee will be held at Walker Street School on February 28 at 6:30 p.m. Teams of three to five are entering the spelling bee in hopes of becoming the Top Speller and taking home the Big Bedazzled B Trophy for the entire year. Everyone is invited to come out and watch the teams as they spell for literacy.

Teams interested in participating should contact the Brooks Family Connection office for an application and to pay their team registration fee. Registration is $20 per team member.

Themes and costumes for teams are highly encouraged and there will be a prize for the Best Team Costume. Afraid you may need a little help during the spelling bee? Teams can purchase “spellitagains” for $75.
