29th Annual Community Spelling Bee

High school students, college students, and adults of all ages!  Join us for a fun and lighthearted test of your spelling mettle.  Spellers work in teams of two, so grab a friend and sign up for a morning of c-a-m-a-r-a-d-e-r-i-e and c-o-m-p-e-t-i-t-i-o-n. 

Registration for the 2023 Spelling Bee is now Open!  We are looking for adult and high school spellers to Join in the fun! Registration Deadline is March 15th, 2023

In the early rounds, we keep scores but don’t eliminate anyone.  Everyone gets to spell at least 10 words.  The top teams move on to the final round.  Winners receive a small prize and big local bragging rights!  A panel of judges will pick a winner for Best Team Name, so feel free to go wild with those honey puns!

Please join us – we can’t spell COMMUNITY without YOU!  

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, there is no charge for spellers to enroll in the Bee.
