Education Fund Spelling Bee

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Education Fund's first Spelling Bee, last year, was so popular that we are not only bringing it back, but we're also making sure there's a bar nearby!

Wanna play? It'll cost you $25, but you get a chance at fabulous prizes and lovely trophies. Wanna watch? That'll be $10, please. Sign up or buy tickets here. Tickets for spectators will also be available at the door.

Your judges will include Kory Stamper, a lexicographer at Merriam-Webster; and Corrie Loeffler, the program manager for the, ahem, Scripps National Spelling Bee. (Other judges to be named soon.) You'd better bring your A game this year, because the competition is going to be fierce. Game on, editors!
