Community, Family, Media Library, Special Programming

SpellingBeeJudging by today’s texting teenagers and their OMG “language,” you might think English is obsolete. But we know at least 70 middle-schoolers who can spell words that’d fill a Twitter screen, and when they get together onstage, it’s like a rock concert of literacy. This upbeat, community-wide celebration of language, education, family, and hard work is like a good reality show: incredibly intense, immensely fun—and free. (And, like a good reality show, it’s also on TV! Seattle Channel broadcasts the Bee live, on Seattle Channel 21 and livestream at www.seattlechannel.org.) The student who outlasts and outspells heads to Washington, D.C., for the annual Scripps National Spelling Bee. Presented by Umpqua Bank and Town Hall.
Free; no tickets required. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.
