Summit County had it's first adult spelling bee as a fundraiser for the Summit Education Foundation last night. The rules were a little different than your average spelling bee - in this event you could buy "cheats" with enough money and keep yourself in the game. As long as it raised money for the Education Foundation! And raise money they did - over $25,000 for our kiddos! Details in the Summit Daily News.
Congratulations to the winning teams...
1st Place - Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate
2nd Place - The Legend Team sponsored by Arapahoe Basin with 3 Summit Cove Elementary teachers
3rd Place - Colorado Learning Connections
All 75 photos online here. Copies are available for a small donation to the Summit Education Foundation! And a few favorites from the night...
And the night ended with the Giveaway of the Red Mini Cooper - by the person guessing closest to the right number of ping pong balls in the vehicle. The correct number was 19,581 and won by local family the Ebys. Eby.
