  • Send a three-person team from your business, office, neighborhood, church, PTO…you get the idea. Your $275 entry fee will benefit our public schools.
  • Make a contribution and let us match you to a team. Many spellers would be grateful for your backing.

  Why bee a sponsor? Why bee a speller?
You’ll want to bee part of the fun! Plus, all the money raised by this event will help the Northampton Education Foundation (NEF) to fulfill its mission to support and strengthen public education in Northampton by providing resources that bring innovation and enrichment to students and teachers in every school.

  Will people know that you support our public schools?
Yes! Team sponsors will be recognized with gratitude in the spelling bee program, in the NEF newsletter, on the NEF’s web site, and on the bee publicity poster (if their payment is received by October 6th, 2020).
