There is still space available for spelling superstars who would like to register now for the seventh-annual Tri-Cities Spelling Bee.
School District 43 students in grades 4 and 5 can register in person at the Port Moody Public Library to compete in the Feb. 9 event.
Students will test their spelling knowledge in the Inlet Theatre, in front of a crowd of admiring parents, friends and interested observers. The library's amateur competition is a friendly and supportive event, and would be perfect for kids who are comfortable spelling in front of a crowd, and are ready for a challenge, according to a press release from the library.
While only the top five spellers will win medals, all participants will be recognized with a gift package of books and spelling bee items. Parents and family members are encouraged to watch this event, and cheer on all of the region's spelling superstars.
Parents can register their children in person anytime, but space is limited. For more information, call the library at 604-469-4577. There is no charge to register.
