What’s the Buzz about the Bee? 

Loudoun Literacy Council invites all spellers (or those who think they can spell) to a night of fun – and fundraising. Join us at the Not-Your-Kid’s Spelling Bee to help improve literacy rates across the county.

Companies of all sizes, individuals, couples, neighbors, congregations, families, book clubs, golf buddies – anyone and everyone – can field teams to prove their superior spelling skills!

Can’t spell? Don’t worry, this Spelling Bee is all about having fun. You’ll have the opportunity to Skip-a-Word, Bribe the Judge and Use Your Phone (for a nominal fee, of course!) – plus you’ll enjoy a light dinner and local wine and beer.

Come to this year’s good-natured – but competitive – event to see if you or your team has what it takes to be named the BEST SPELLER in Loudoun County!
