Project Literacy Spelling Bee Happy Hour

Mar 12, 2017

5:00pm – 6:00pm CT

Onomatopoeia. Persnickety. Think you can spell words like these? If so, then we want you! Come enjoy a drink and try your luck at the Project Literacy Spelling Bee. Make a small donation to play: it’ll be furious, fast fun, all while supporting adults who are learning to read and write. You too can help us break the cycle of adult illiteracy. Put the stultiloquence aside and you could be crowned Spelling Bee champ at SXSW.

Project Literacy is a global campaign founded and convened by Pearson to make significant and sustainable advances in the fight against illiteracy by 2030 so that all people - regardless of geography, language, race, class, or gender – have the opportunity to fulfill their potential through the power of words.
