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).
