Community Spelling Bee back at TJR

The Community Spelling Bee at Thomas J. Rusk Elementary School returns next week where teams from businesses and organizations will get a chance to “spell it out” on stage.

Eight teams are already down for the competition, which serves as the campus’ spring fundraiser, and more are expected to sign up in coming days, TJR Principal Paula Harshbarger said.

Businesses and organizations can enter a three-person team. The registration fee is $250 per team, and participants can also buy $25 “second chance passes” that can be redeemed during the competition to remain in the spelling bee should a team stumble over a word.

Trophies will be awarded to the winning spellers, best costumes, and most team spirit.

The Spelling Bee at TJR, once an annual community event, is set for 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 17, at the school’s auditorium.

Teams wishing to enter the contest can contact TJR secretary Tammy Wiggins by calling 936-569-3100.
