The event is still almost three weeks away, but fundraising and pledging has already been going on for several weeks in preparation of 826LA’s Spelling Bee for Cheaters. Here’s how it works:
- Sign up in teams of two or more. It’s free and anyone can join!
- Raise money for your team.
- On Saturday, August 14 each team sends one member to represent them at the spelling bee. You can use the funds you’ve raised to order from a menu of cheats. The more money you raise, the more you can cheat!
All the money raised will go towards 826LA’s free writing and tutoring programs for kids.
The spelling bee will take place on Saturday, August 14 from 2:00 to 6:00 pm at Lincoln Middle School in Santa Monica. This year, Spike Jonze, John Krasinski, Judd Apatow, Dianna Agron, and others are scheduled to appear. Will YOU be there to out-spell and out-cheat the competition?
