King/Snohomish Regional Spelling Bee

Great Hall; enter on 8th Avenue. Free, no tickets required.

Family, Literary

Judging by today’s texting teenagers and their OMG “language,” you might think English is obsolete. But we know at least 60 middle-schoolers who can spell words that’d fill a Twitter screen, and when they get together on stage, 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. 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 Seattle
