Adult Team Spelling Bee 2024

Presented by

with Supporting Sponsor

Join us for the 5th Annual Team Spelling Bee!

Registration for the 2024 Team Spelling Bee is now open!

On Thursday, June 6th, 2024, 7am-9am, Project Literacy will host our 5th Annual Adult Team Spelling Bee Fundraiser at the Coast Capri Hotel at 1171 Harvey Avenue in Kelowna!

Can you spell V-I-C-T-O-R-Y?!

This event is proudly sponsored by Pushor Mitchell LLP and Source Office Furniture with all funds raised from the Team Spelling Bee going towards supporting Project Literacy programs for children and adults. The Team Spelling Bee includes coffee, tea, fruit juice and a hot buffet breakfast. The words are tough but the competition is even tougher. Teams of eight adults will compete for the Spelling Bee Trophy. Can you beat the returning champions: Society of Learning in Retirement’s ‘SpeLeRs’ who took the Spelling Bee Trophy for the second time in 2023?!

This year, we are trying a few different things. Not only can you register a team of eight that you create but you can also register as an individual and leave the team creation to us! A great way to join in the fun AND meet new people!

We are also introducing a Spirit Award for the most spirited and creative team — costumes, chants, anything you can think of that embodies team spirit!

Thank you to our media sponsor Bell Media Radio Group: 99.9 Virgin Radio, Move Radio and AM1150, to our dedicated volunteers for contributing their time. Of course, a huge thank you to Pushor Mitchell LLP for joining us, yet again, as our official Event Sponsor and to Source Office Furniture for coming on, this year, as Supporting Sponsor!

Register today and see if you might “bee” the next winner!

**Registration closes May 24th, 2024**
