What’s the buzz!
Bee for Adults
Friday April 28, 2006 7-9pm at the O'Maley Middle School
Gather a team together
and join our Spell Moderator and illustrious panel of judges for this
lighthearted, spirited evening. The dollars
raised from the “Bee” will go to fund innovative programs and projects in
all our public schools through the Gloucester School
Connection (GSC), a non-profit community organization.
How Does the Spelling Bee Work?
Within each round,
Teams of four (18 years +) will be given a designated amount of time to
spell the same word simultaneously. Team members may collaborate on the
spelling of the word and the Team Captain will print the word legibly on
an erasable whiteboard. If a Team misspells a word, the Team is
eliminated. The last Team to spell a word correctly in a particular round
is declared the winner of that round and will come back for a playoff
round. The last Team standing during the playoff round will be declared
the winner of the Bee. (See official Spelling Bee Rules attached)
