The Tenth Annual North Country Spelling Bee is scheduled to take place at the Harrietstown Town Hall in Saranac Lake on Saturday, April 28, 2012. Registration begins at 9:30am and the Spelling Bee begins at 10:00am. Everyone is invited to join in the fun! Spellers compete in teams of two: two adults, an adult with any-age student, or two students 12 years or older.
Created and organized by Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties, this event will generate proceeds through team sponsorships ($50 each, tax deductible) to fund free educational programs for adults, children, and families.
This innovative event is always big, exciting, and fun! The more teams that compete, the more fun the spellers have. If some teams need help finding sponsors, Literacy Volunteers can match them up.
Admittance is free and, as usual, for competing teams and sponsors there is a complimentary luncheon. A $5 luncheon fee will be charged for all audience members.
If you want to have fun as a speller (or to sponsor other spellers), please call Literacy Volunteers at Saranac Lake, 891-5567; Port Henry, 546-3008; or Malone, 483-9366.
