The Pretty Great Spelling Bee
Join us for the first-ever SPACE Spelling Bee: an amaranthine tournament of byzantine words and wits, where crusaders lock horns amongst the fiery blitzkreig of spelling battle. Only one swaggering combatant will emerge propitious, and will hence be appointed the sobriquet of 2015 Spelling Bee Champion.
Three efficacious and judicious judges shall preside over the joust: Judge Phuc Tran, Judge Jessica Tomlinson, and Judge Taffy Field. The cicerones who will orchestrate the contest will be the co-hostesses of npilar radio, a local counterfeit radio program.
NOW: WE NEED A BAND OF STOUTHEARTED SOULS TO BE OUR SPELLERS.
