Deadline for spelling bee sponsors, participants nears

Published: Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 05:06 PM.

The Havelock Chamber of Commerce is seeking participants and sponsors for its annual Spelling Bee scheduled for March 11 at the Havelock Tourist and Event Center.

The event raises money to support area schools.

Sponsorship packages range from $100 Bee Buck sponsor to a $1,000 Queen Bee Sponsor. The Hive or Team sponsorship is $250.

The Spelling Bee has four-person teams in three elimination rounds before the finals determine the winner. The team entry fee is $150 or $250, which provides the chance to miss six words without being eliminated in the first three rounds.

Deadline to enter or become a sponsor is Tuesday.

For more information on the event, call the Havelock Chamber of Commerce at 447-1101 or email
