Eighteen teams competed Friday in Community Education’s ninth annual Spellabration fundraiser at Sloan Convention Center, which featured a spelling bee and silent auction.
The thousands of dollars raised will benefit before- and after-school programs operated in Bowling Green and Warren County by Community Education. The final amount raised hasn’t been calculated, but organizers hoped to top the $8,000 raised at the 2013 Spellabration.
The winning team of spellers was Spellers in Action from Community Action of Southern Kentucky. SKY Spellers from Southcentral Kentucky Community & Technical College came in second and Spelling Bad from Hawkins Law Office was third.
The SKY Spellers team was made up of Rick Wilson, Addi Hernandez, Zee Evelsizer, and Jaquenetta Ortiz.
