Designed to help students improve their spelling, vocabulary and develop correct English, the Higgins Middle School Spelling Bee program involving roughly 1,450 students was conducted at the middle school this year.
During this time, the program identified the top 10 spellers at each grade level (6th, 7th and 8th). All 30 contestants will receive “goody bags” and the top three winners will also receive prizes.
In addition to the competition, the Big Bee event will feature a silent auction of artwork created by Higgins students as well as donated item from Burtons Grill, Build-A-Bear Workshop®, Sephora and more.
Proceeds of the silent auction will benefit the Peabody Education Foundation.
