Save the date for the 33rd annual Reaching Heights Adult Community Spelling BEE - a beloved community tradition! Form a team and join the fun!
Each year since 1992, Reaching Heights has sponsored a community spelling bee for adults and high school teams. Up to 25 three-person teams compete for the coveted Bee Trophy and bragging rights for a whole year! Proceeds from this friendly competition – nearly $320,000 to date - allow Reaching Heights to support teachers, enrich students and connect the community to our public schools. This year the funds raised will go to support the Many Villages Tutoring program and Role Model Speakers program.
All kinds of teams find their way to the Spelling BEE stage – teachers, lawyers, librarians, local merchants, musicians, elected officials, PTA-sponsored parent-teacher teams, church, and university affiliated spellers. The team entrance fee is $500.
This FREE & OPEN TO THE COMMUNITY event brings together everyone to play along and loudly cheer on their favorite teams! In addition to an evening of laughs and great spelling, families can enjoy delicious bake sale treats and enter to win fantastic raffle basket prizes!
