Thanks to Fred Flare for supporting the English language -- and those who choose to celebrate it in bars -- by offering these lovely prizes to our bee winners.
One exemplary participant will win the Scrabble Refrigerator Magnet Set, for all your fridge Scrabble-playing needs!
Another distinguished candidate will win the Scrabble Coaster Set, because if there’s one thing we stand for at the Williamsburg Spelling Bee, it’s combining word games and alcohol.
