Countdown To Spellabration

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) — Spellabration is only two weeks away and participating teams have received this year’s official rules and regulations.

Community Education hosts this spelling bee each year, but this one isn’t for kids. Adults are put in the hot seat.

Area businesses and organizations sponsor a team, create a unique name and bring serious competition. Along with the ticket sales, a silent auction will be available as well.

The money raised will support Community Education’s after school programs.

“Specifically for walkie-talkies, to make sure everybody is on the same page at the school sites. The money will always go toward our one-on-one aids for those children that need the assistance. We don’t want to charge parents extra because they have so much on their plates already,” said Ashley Forbes, Community Education.

Spellabration is Friday, February 20. Doors open at 5:45 pm. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids.

A portion of this year’s proceeds will create the Anne Grubbs Scholarship, in honor of Anne Grubbs, a long time advocate with Community Education.
