AR Kids Read Celebrity Spelling Bee

View the event via Facebook or YouTube

Local media talent will compete to see who is better than spell check at Spellebration! This year’s event will occur virtually, on Thursday, August 20th, at 7 p.m. via Facebook and YouTube. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, including presenting sponsor Entergy, invited guests will enjoy dinner at home, while watching the spelling action and bidding on silent auction items.

Spellebration is the annual celebrity spelling bee fundraiser for AR Kids Read.

The 2018 “Queen Bee” spelling champion Lisa Fischer has returned as emcee this year to test the spelling skills of local media personalities: Ansley Watson, KATV Channel 7; Idris Turner, Power 92.3; Josh Snyder, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette; and Mia Banks, 96.5 The Box. Each celebrity speller will have help from a sponsoring team from Legacy Termite Pest Control, Mitchell Williams Law Firm, Riggs CAT, and Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas.
