Scripps National Spelling Bee

The Scripps National Spelling Bee has reached the final round. The nation will watch as a group of young geniuses make the rest of us feel simple minded by spelling words that most of us have never even heard. While our two-time champ is sitting this one out, the field is full of future interesting characters vying for scholarship money to send them on the path to becoming doctors, lawyers, rock scientists and future We B-E-E Spelling Champions.

Check out Grantland's scouting report on the field. 

Oh, and maybe you want to spend a few minutes watching the Bee. You may get a sneak peak of some words that will embarrass our contestants at the next event.

We B-E-E Spelling wishes the best of luck to all the finalists of this year's Scripps National Spelling Bee!

We B-E-E So Grateful!

Thank you,

T-H-A-N-K Y-O-U 

Thank you!

What an absolute BLAST we had on Friday night! We cannot fully express our overwhelming gratitude and love for all of you that came out, participated, cheered and heckled with genuine joy and excitement. Over 200 people packed the house and created an atmosphere that felt more like a rocking concert than a spelling bee. Our faces are hurting from all the smiles and laughs you gave us.

And speaking of giving, your contributions (whether or not you made it to the party) raised over $14,000 for Blue EngineFourteen THOUSAND!  Simply amazing.

A big congratulations to our now 2-time champion, Mr. John McClain, who took home a beautiful trophy and annual memberships to the MoMA and Guggenheim museums. Once again, we had to spitfire some of the most difficult to spell words in the English language to crown a winner. Better start studying now if you plan on making a run at this champ next time!

Here's to all the big brained spellers, dauntless dunces, and huge hearted philanthropists that made Friday such a special night. Thank you for being part of We B-E-E Spelling and supporting the hard work and dedication of the folks at Blue Engine.


Much Love,

Alex and Andrew
