Description

MCAEL is proud to announce the Third Annual Grown-Up Spelling Bee for Adult English Literacy. Catch the Buzz and mark your calendars now for April 20th, 2016! Join MCAEL Staff, board, providers, instructors, community leaders and some of the coalition’s 13,000+ adult learners to raise money for and awareness about English literacy in Montgomery County, MD.



Spelling bees


Ready, Set, S-p-e-l-l!

Release your inner geek and cheer on teams of three as they compete in a grown-up spelling bee! The champion team for 2013 was Holy Cross Hospital. Will they t-r-i-u-m-p-h or will another team Buzz away with the victory?

Dr. Robin C. Barr, Linguist-in-Residence at American University, Washington DC, will be this year’s word pronouncer and our guest judges will include:

  • Stewart Edelstein, Executive Director, Universities at Shady Grove
  • Ginanne Italiano, President & CEO, The Greater Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chamber of Commerce
  • Suzan Jenkins, CEO, Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County

What's the Buzz all about?

One in 10 limited English proficient adults in Montgomery County does not read or write well enough to fill out a job application. Montgomery Coalition for Adult English Literacy (MCAEL) is here to change that.

Every $1 invested in adult education garners our community $3 in return. Proceeds from the Grown Up Spelling bee will support MCAEL’s efforts to address English literacy needs in Montgomery County.

The Place to Bee:

We know you’re a busy bee, but we’d love you to be part of our hive of spectators to enjoy a fun night of food, cocktails, spelling and p-h-i-l-a-n-t-h-r-o-p-y with us! Wednesday, April 20, 2016 6:30pm-8:30pm

Invite your friends, colleagues, help us spread the buzz!



Sponsors thus far include: Adventist HealthCare Rockville, Burness Communications, Lerch & Early and Brewer, Montgomery College, Rivka Yerushalmi, Social & Scientific Systems, Universities at Shady Grove.
