adultbee

Please join the Billerica Partners for Education for our inaugural Adult Spelling Bee competition.

  • Friday, April 29, 2016, at 7 PM
  • Billerica Lodge of Elks, Webb Brook Road, Billerica

The format of the Adult Spelling Bee is as follows:

  • In each of the qualifying rounds, teams of up to four will compete, spelling 20 words in a traditional pencil/paper format.
  • Each word will be pronounced, defined, and used in a sentence.
  • Teams can discuss the spelling and write the word on the provided score sheet.
  • At the end of each round scores will be tallied and displayed.
  • At the end of three rounds, the top teams will advance to a sudden death spell-off.
  • In the final spell-off, one team at a time will be given a word.
  • The word will be pronounced, defined, and used in a sentence.
  • The team can discuss the spelling, but only one person will spell the word into a microphone.
  • If the word is spelled correctly, the team continues to the next round, if incorrect the team is out.

We’ll keep spelling until we have a winning team!
