Rotary teams up with Scotiabank for next Spelling Bee competition

GREAT BAY – The Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle has teamed up once again with Scotiabank to host the 7th Annual Scotiabank Rotary/Rotaract Spelling Bee Competition for elementary school students aged 9 and 10.
The objective of this Spelling Bee is to improve literacy and enhance the students’ educational experience. With Scotiabank’s commitment, Mid Isle Club is confident that this year’s Spelling Bee will be successful once again.
For the second year Mid Isle will offer tutorial sessions to participating students.  The schools will be able to sign up with Mid Isle members for the students to be assisted by Rotarians and Rotaractors to learn the words which will give them a better chance to advance to the second and third rounds.
The Scotiabank Rotary/Rotaract Spelling Bee will take place at the Belair Community Center on the Sundays,  October 15, 22 and 29.
