NORWALK, Conn. – Teams are lining up to take part in the Norwalk Education Foundation’s second annual Community Spelling Bee set for Wednesday, March 26.

Last year’s winner, Friends with Words, is on board to defend its title, along with teams from Fox Run, Naramake and Columbus Magnet schools, Wyzwimmin (a women’s book group), two teams from Garavel Suburu, and teams representing the Town Clerk’s Office, the courthouse and Webster Bank.

There’s still time to enter. The NEF would like to hear from teams by Monday, March, 11, in time to update the evening’s printed program.

    With the use of auto-correct on computers and with texting taking over letter writing (or even phone conversations), spelling bees are totally out-of-date. NEF needs to move toward the 21st century.

  2. Because auto-correcting and texting are always correct spelling….

    Sounds just like the teachers in Norwalk when asked about spelling tests.

    Irishgirl, it is a technological world out there. Acceptance of what exists needs to be accepted. BTW, text messaging has its own spelling, not YET in Mirriam Webster’s dictionary.
