Although we cannot host our usual Bee, we are happy to report that the “Bee A Reader” raffle still happened! The drawing took place on Thursday, August 20 beginning at noon. Winners are listed on the Bee A Reader page here on the website.
We eagerly look forward to a return to normalcy, and to the 2021 Community Spelling Bee. See you on the other side!
Thank you to the generous folks who sponsored what would have been our 29th Annual Community Spelling Bee!
Spelling Bee sponsorships help Literacy Connections provide life-changing education to adults and reading enrichment programs for children.
Teams hold up a sign with the sponsor’s name each time they spell throughout the Bee. Each team participates for a minimum of 10 rounds.
