The creators of Broadway’s The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee are bringing the thrill of a live Spelling Bee to Seattle for Powerful Schools/Cheezburger's "First-Ever, Celebrity-Tech-Community, Spelling BEE". During the BEE - veteran improvisers will put our Speller's spelling acumen to the test while providing you with non-stop laughter, suspense and obscure vocabulary!
Proceeds will benefit Powerful Schools, a local non-profit serving low-income schools in Seattle and South King County.
This is how it works:
Each Speller is backed by a team. Together teams are raising money to purchase cheats, which their Speller will use to win the BEE.
Cheats are like “lifelines” - spellers will purchase opportunities to ask the audience, look in the dictionary, etc ... with the funds raised by their teams. Ultimately - all of the funds will go to Powerful Schools to support their award-winning programs in Seattle-area schools!
Spellers will be eliminated as words are misspelled, and a winner will be crowned. Our winner will take home bragging rights and a one-of-a-kind prize - and invited to defend their crown in 2015.
Spellers will choose their own CHEATS:
$250: I BEFORE E
a one letter hint ... limit three per word.
$500: ASK YOUR TEAM
you built a crazy smart team ... use them!
$1000: LOOK IN THE DICTIONARY
hopefully you can find what you need in the giant book of words.
$1500: ASK THE AUDIENCE
we’re providing a HUGE audience full of geniuses ... maybe they’ll know.
$2500: GET A NEW WORD
$5000 : PASS TO THE NEXT ROUND

baller move ... we’ll see you in the finals.
