Altrusa Club announces registration for adult spelling bee in April

Staff report

SIDNEY — Sidney Altrusa International has announced there are still openings for teams who wish to register for its April 20 Adult Spelling Bee at Ohio Living Dorothy Love.

The registration deadline is April 15.

Businesses and organizations may form teams of three adults who will compete in an old-fashioned spelling bee.

The registration fee of $250, which is tax deductible, will be used to promote education, with scholarships awarded at the end of the school year to Shelby County residents. Over the last five years, Altrusa has awarded $20,000 in scholarship monies.

Those who would like to sponsor a team but cannot find enough spellers may contact Altrusa and be matched with one, two or three spellers. Team sponsors will have their names prominently displayed on a banner at the event and in all advertising.
