Teams consist of three adults (age 18 & over). Each team receives one white board and dry erase marker. Team members will have a sufficient supply of scratch paper to come up with the correct spelling of the word before writing it on the white board for the judges’ review. Three judges will monitor the competition. The judges’ decisions are FINAL.
Each word is assigned a point value based on the difficulty of the word. The team with the most points at the end of the competition wins. Winners will be recognized in the library newsletter, Connections and on our website.
