Come to Beeee a Contestant Or to Cheer the Spellers On…

Spelling9The Friends of Scarsdale Library invites you to join them on Friday, March 1, at 7:30pm (snow date, Friday, March 8) at SHS Auditorium for a fabulous, fun community event to benefit Scarsdale Library.

Scarsdale’s greatest (or bravest) spellers will battle it out on stage while onlookers spell along at their seats–where it’s somehow much easier. We are limited to just 15 teams of three adults each to compete in multiple rounds, or in bee-speak, swarms. There will also be a separate set of swarms for high schoolers.

All proceeds will benefit the Scarsdale Public Library and enable the SPL (which, come to think of it, could be pronounced “spell”) to continue to offer the unique programs and speakers we all enjoy throughout the year.

Josh Milstein, a 2006 SHS alumnus will emcee the bee, and Mayor Justin Arest, Library Director Beth Bermel, and NYS Assemblywoman Amy Paulin will serve as judges.spellingbee.jpg

Please get your team together and sign up here: Spelling Bee 2024

Registration for adult teams is $180 and for teen teams it’s $75. All participants get Bee t-shirts and water bottles.There also will be prizes galore, and, of course, Queen Bee bragging rights for the winners.

We don’t want to drone on, so we’ll end it here. Looking forward to seeing you there!
