Register your child for Tybee Island 6th Annual Spelling Bee, Oct. 2

Friday, September 12th, 2014

2014 Tybee Island Spelling Bee Tybee Maritime Academy Students in 4th-8th grade are invited to participate in Tybee Island’s 6th Annual Spelling Bee, 6:30 PM Thursday, October 2, 2014 @ Tybee YMCA gym. (Teams arrive by 5:45 pm)

All money raised will be donated to the Tybee Island Maritime Academy to be used toward technology for students.

Organizers are seeking teams to participate (students in 4th – 8th grade from any schools or home-schoolers) as well as sponsors to help underwrite the event, and of course, people to come cheer on the teams.

Contact Rory Coyle via email at or Brenda Marion via email at

Admission is $5 per adult, $2 per student.

There will also be a split-the-pot raffle available. Tickets will be sold prior to the bee and the night of. Raffle tickets at $5 each or 5 for $20.

Teams are given rules and asked to familiarize themselves with them. The teams have 4 people on them. There are 3 adults and one student (grades 4-8). If a team needs a student, the school has them waiting in the wings. The teams can huddle after they are given the word, then only one person comes to the microphone at a time. Each person on the team spells in turn.

Teams can raise money for their team to earn a “spell-a-gain.” The team who raises the most money wins one “spell-a-gain”, which entitles that team to a new word if they misspelled the word given.

A second “spell-a-gain” will be awarded to a team. For every $100 each team raises the team’s name will be placed in the hat. So if they raise $200, it will be placed in twice, $300 three times, etc. One lucky team will be drawn from the hat and awarded a “spell-a-gain”.

All money earned by the teams should be cash or checks made payable to Tybee Island Maritime Academy.

Words used will be taken from the Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee here.

Teams dress up, and act crazy. It’s a family event and lots of fun for all.
