Held each year in April, the Nashua Adult Spelling Bee is a Nashua Education Foundation community fundraising event which raises money to fund enrichment programs for the Nashua Public Schools. The Bee is a major fundraiser for NEF and great fun for participants and observers alike!
We can accommodate up to 50 teams in the Bee representing local businesses, law firms, families, community organizations even neighborhoods! Each team is made up of three members, and seven or eight teams compete in a round. The winner of each round then competes in the championship round. The champions take home the Bee trophy to keep for their reigning year.
The Bee does not involve solo spelling!
All teams in a round spell words simultaneously. The emcee announces the word and the three team members can collaborate on the spelling of a word before writing down their answer on the slate provided. Teams have 25 seconds and then must display their answer. Teams that correctly spell the word continue. Each speller is provided a study guide with most of the spelling words approximately one month prior to the Bee.
If you prefer not to spell but would like to participate, any and all donations are welcome. We are sure to have non-profit community teams who will need sponsorship by generous individuals, families and local businesses.
