Canada 150 "Eh Bee" Spelling Bee

Canada 150 "Eh Bee" Spelling Bee

Sun November 19 | 2-3.30pm | Centraleh b33

“Gimme an Eh! Gimme a Bee!” Join us for a one-of-a-kind spelling bee in which contestants from grades 5-6 test their ability to spell distinctly Canadian words. The spelling bee should last approximately an hour.

Stay after for a short talk on the history of Canadian English by Canada’s foremost expert on Canadian English and our bee adjudicator, Katherine Barber, editor-in-chief, Canadian Oxford Dictionary.

No sign-up required to attend the spelling bee. First-come-first seated. Doors to Centennial Hall, 1st floor, open at 1.30pm.

'Bee' a participant!
