Spellebration 2018!

You can solve the riddle of reading!

Spellebration is an adult spelling bee and silent auction for Literacy Outreach and the CMC Learning Labs. Teams of three costumed spellers make their way through an increasingly challenging list of words. Teams can spell or buy their way to bragging rights as the best spellers in Garfield County.

Anyone willing to join in the fun and also support adult literacy in Garfield County is encouraged to assemble a team, locate a sponsor, chose a costume and come play with the festive crowd on April 6, 2018. To sign up, or to get more information, call Literacy Outreach at 970-945-5282 or click here

In addition, local businesses who would like to sponsor a team can call Literacy Outreach, as can donors who wish to contribute to the silent auction.

This year we are celebrating our spellers. With a ComicCon theme: Superheroes Spelling for Literacy.  Join us for a fun-filled evening on April 6 at the historic Hotel Colorado.  Spelling begins at 6:00 p.m.
