Westlake Porter Public Library is challenging all great spellers and word lovers to find out how well they can spell by entering the Fourth Annual Friends of Porter Library Spelling Bee. The Bee will take place on Thursday, August 29 at 7 p.m. It is open to teams of four to six, which can be composed of families, friends, neighbors, coworkers – anyone who wants to spell together. Teams compete for bragging rights as the West Shore’s best spellers.
Entry information and a word list are available at the library now. The competition takes place in a format similar to that of the National Spelling Bee, with an official pronouncer, word definitions and derivation available on request. Teams will be allowed to select their team speller for each round and consult with one another before spelling the word in play.
