The Hill-Arious Spellerz team from Hill’s Pet Nutrition won the 11th annual Community Education Spellabration event February 19th at the Sloan Convention Center, beating WBKO Television’s WBKObi-wan-Kenobees team in the final round of the Star Wars-themed event. The annual fundraiser, described as a party with an adult spelling bee in the middle, was sponsored by Graves Gilbert Clinic and Hill’s Pet Nutrition. Tony Rose of WDNS-FM radio served as Master of Ceremonies and Alan Palmer was again the word reader in an event billed as “Spell Wars”.
The 11 teams and guests were treated to a variety of foods donated by local restaurants, and they were able to browse and bid on dozens of silent auction items in this event that raises funds for Community Education’s school-age programs for children in the Bowling Green and Warren County school systems.
In addition to Hill’s and WBKO, other Spellabration winners were honored. The Best Costume Award went to the spELPO team from the English, Lucas, Priest & Owsley law firm, the Best Table Decoration Award went to the Spellunkers team from Lost River Cave, and the Most Spirited Award went to the Dewey Decibels team from the Warren County Public Library.
