Longview Corporate Spelling Bee

The Annual Corporate Spelling Bee reminded local participates in the power of the silent "e". Sixteen teams entered the 12th Annual Corporate Spelling Bee to raise money for the East Texas Literacy Council.

They spelled words that we only hope we never use, like prestidigitator  and ubsequious.  They had their own cheering sections, with unique ways of support. The event has grown every year. More than $30,000 was raised for the Literacy Council.  The winning team was K.S.A engineering , who correctly spelled the final word... Verisimilitude.
