SCORE! Educational Centers is holding a free Spelling Bee event for Newark, Fremont and Union City area students on Saturday, March 24th from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. The event will be held at SCORE!, located at 5789 Jarvis Avenue in Newark, and is open to children of all ages.
Students will be asked to spell grade-appropriate words in a group setting. Prizes will be given for the best speller in each grade category.
All kids will have a fun, positive experience in an environment that will allow them to display the fruits of their hard work.
"The benefits of participating in the spelling bee reach beyond improving language skills," said Steve Johnson, vice President of Education for SCORE! "Because children will be interacting in a group setting, they will build their self-confidence, their ability to thrive under pressure, and their public speaking skills. They will also have the opportunity to meet other children and make new friends in the community."
For further information or to register for the event, families should call the center at (510) 793-2370 or email: Score.firstname.lastname@example.org.
