Great Grown Up Spelling Bee – 2018

Our 9th annual Great Grown Up Spelling Bee is a WRAP!

What a great evening!  AWESOME spelling teams and TWO TERRIFIC HOSTS made this year’s event one to remember! 

Gary Plaford and Steve Scott took to the Great Grown Up Spelling Bee stage this year to lead our teams through an intense spelling competition.   Humor, puns, definitions, and wit were supplied by this duo to help our teams spell their way to victory.   

It was a tight competition with the following recap:

Round 2 the Coffman Proactive Spell Caster got stung with the word STUPEFY (their spelling was stupify)

Round 3 we lost the Ivy Tech Funkuators with the word CONSCIENTIOUS


Round 4 we lost the CSO Architects May the Force BEE With You on the word EPOCHAL

Round 5 the Solution Tree Spell Checkers were defeated with the work CLAFOUTI – a dessert consisting of a layer of fruit topped with batter and baked

Round 6 the FMCCS BEE Boppers were stumped with the word ECU – a shield carried by a mounted man-at-arms in the Middle Ages 

It was a fierce final round giving the IU Herman B Spells team 2nd place and the Cook Spellabrators winning the coveted championship title!







Spirit went to Cook Medical and Best Costume to Solution Tree Spell Checkers and the Ivy Tech Funkuators!










Thank you to all of our sponsors and teams for making this year an outstanding event!
