Thanks to Bee Sponsor Mental Floss!

At our Labor Day Spelling Bee, four contestants won this "Spell Czech" t-shirt. We have a few more Mental Floss prizes tucked away for the December finals. We think Mental Floss is a pretty perfect sponsor for the Williamsburg Spelling Bee, and thank them for their patronage.
