Serve Daily - - BUILDING COMMUNITY - By T’shara Keil

Reg­is­tra­tion is now open for cor­po­ra­tions and or­ga­ni­za­tions to sign up to com­pete in Project Read’s 10th an­nual spell­ing bee, which will be held on Sept. 27.

Touted as one of Project Read’s most ex­cit­ing fundrais­ing events of the year, the char­ity event pits cor­po­rate teams against each other in an ef­fort to cor­rectly spell words, earn points and win the cov­eted bee tro­phy.

In cel­e­bra­tion of Na­tional Lit­er­acy Month, Project Read will also take some time dur­ing the bee to pre­sent its “Lit­er­acy in the Com­mu­nity Award,” an award given to an in­di­vid­ual who has demon­strated loy­alty and com­mit­ment to ad­vanc­ing the cause of lit­er­acy.

This event is an op­por­tu­nity to not only have a good time, but also to con­trib­ute to a good, lo­cal cause. Since 1984, Project Read has been work­ing to pro­vide one- on-one tu­tor­ing for func­tion­ally il­lit­er­ate adults in Utah County and change lives through lit­er­acy by em­pow­er­ing in­di­vid­u­als, strength­en­ing fam­i­lies and build­ing com­mu­nity. Funds raised through the spell­ing bee will be used to fur­ther that mis­sion.

The spell­ing bee will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Provo City Li­brary Ball­room, 550 N. Univer­sity Av­enue, Provo. In­ter­ested groups or or­ga­ni­za­tions should reg­is­ter in ad­vance ei­ther on­line at http://pro­jec­tread­u­tah.org/spell­ing-bee/ or by call­ing Project Read at 801-448-READ (7323).
