Spelling Bee for Literacy
March 9, 2005
Saint Michael’s College

Once again the Spelling Bee for Literacy surpassed its goal of raising $10,000 for the Vermont Humanities Council’s literacy programs in Chittenden County.

More than forty, three-person teams from schools, businesses, and non-profits throughout Chittenden County competed. Spellers tested their skills for fun, prizes, and most importantly, literacy. Those who make it to the final round spelled some very difficult words for final round judges First Lady Dorothy Douglas and novelist Philip Baruth.

The chamption spellers were The Searchers from Cornerstone Closing & Title Company.
