The Grate Groan-Up Spelling Bee is the hottest competition in the MD of Foothills. This hilarious, action packed afternoon on October 4th, 2014 has teams of three people competing in a battle for bragging rights to spelling supremacy and to win the coveted BEE Trophy. Not only are they battling for spelling supremacy they are in a competition to see which team can raise the most pledges to support literacy and learning in the Foothills.
Join us October 4th 2014 at the Wales Theatre, High River for the Bee-vent! Thank you to the Kidwai Family who own the Wales Theatre for their major sponsorship of the Bee! Check out our Video promoting the Bee and Literacy for Life.
Are you a better speller than our participants? Come out and watch. Test your own skills. Enjoy a fun afternoon without being a participant on the stage. There is limited seating and a cash donation will be collected at the door. We’re thrilled to announce the return of John Barlow our Conservative MP as the Bee-Master of Ceremonies and Darrel Janz of Inspired, CTV as the Master Bee Pronouncer, and Danielle Smith, MLA and Leader of the Opposition as Honorary Chair. Also returning is Sandra Wiebe of Routes Media and Doris Daley as our esteemed Bee- judges. The spelling bee-vent will be at the Wales Theatre, High River.
