In an exciting twist on the traditional spelling bee format, the Bladen County Education Foundation is gearing up for its 2nd Annual Spelling Bee where students will turn the tables to judge members of the Foundation. This unique event is set to take place at Bladen Community College on Tuesday, April 23rd, starting at 6 p.m.

Representatives from 13 local public schools will participate, but they won’t be the ones spelling. Instead, these adults will step up to the microphone to test their spelling skills while students serve as judges. This role reversal promises to add a fun and engaging dynamic to the evening, making it more than just a competition—it’s a chance for students to engage directly in the educational process in a fun and interactive way.

Admission to the event is priced at an affordable $5, making it accessible for families and community members to come out and enjoy the festivities. The event is open to the public, offering a perfect opportunity for community members to support local education and enjoy a night of entertainment and friendly competition.

David Wall, Chairman of the Bladen County Education Foundation and a key organizer of the event, encourages everyone to attend. It promises to be a fun time for all. Not only will attendees enjoy watching their community leaders showcase their spelling abilities, but they’ll also appreciate the spirited and humorous interactions between the adults and student judges.

Questions and comments about the event can be directed to David Wall. Don’t miss out on this engaging community event that supports educational initiatives within Bladen County while providing a platform for laughter and learning.
