Llibrary spelling bee buzzes into town

Show off your spelling talent

Spelling enthusiasts who are currently in Grades 6 or 7 are invited to showcase their spelling skills by competing in the Fraser Valley Regional Library’s (FVRL) Sport of Spelling. The library is now accepting registrations for nine spelling bees to be held in October and November at the Clearbrook, Walnut Grove, City of Langley, Tsawwassen, Chilliwack, Ladner Pioneer, Mission, Murrayville and George Mackie branches.

The top three spellers from each bee will receive medals and advance to the Grand Championship at the Clearbrook Library on November 26, where they will compete for spelling supremacy and other prizes including books and a $100 Chapters gift card. Registration is required by October 15 but early registration is recommended as space is limited to a maximum of 25 competitors per bee. Visit any of the participating branches to register.

The goal of the Sport of Spelling is to engage young people in positive competition while having fun. For more information, please visit www.fvrl.ca or any of the participating libraries.
