What is a corporate spelling bee?
The MHCLC's corporate spelling bee is our main fundraising event each year. Companies and institutions from around Marshall sponsor teams to compete for the title of Supreme Spellmaster.
That isn't the only competition though. The teams also come with their own spirit sections in the hopes of also winning the coveted Spirit Stick which is awarded to the team with, well with the most spirit! Crazy outfits and lots of noise aren't a necessity but they are encouraged!
But wait! There's more! We also have cash and prizes for our audience members!
Audience spell games are available for $1, the most correct answers wins a prize!
Split the pot: attendees have a choice of donating cash into our honey pot and at the end a winner will be chosen to split the cash with us!
And new this year there will be a raffle for a handmade quilt from The Peculiar Poppy, tickets are $1 and you can buy as many as you want!
See some of the fun from last year's Bee!
