We’re so excited that, thanks to the incredible generosity and the support of our spellers, community, and three caring sponsors, we raised $18,485!
Not only did 11 teams join us for a morning of fun spelling, but together, you all helped ONE TO ONE students get that much closer to reconnecting with their tutors. We couldn’t bee happier!
It was incredible to wake up and see so many smiling faces on the morning of September 24th. Although it was everyone’s first virtual Spelling Bee, the experience of working with your team to solve strenuous spelling assignments probably felt as familiar as ever.
Congratulations to our champion spellers:
Team winner: R-E-P-O-R-T-E-X took the coveted ONE TO ONE Spelling Bee trophy home for the next year. Big congratulations to them!
Individual winners: Our two rapid fire rounds were more challenging than we could have expected!
So, let’s celebrate the spelling savvy of John Webster from PwC who took home overall honours as our top individual speller and the Strange Fellows Brewing gift pack.
And let’s not forget our runner-up Rhys Davies from DLA Piper who was close behind, and received a gift certificate to Balila Hummus!
And, thank you to our incredible quizmaster Dr. Jonathan Berkowitz for crafting challenging spelling questions and keeping us entertained with all the literacy puns. While current circumstances are keeping us apart for a little spell, we hope to bee in the same space together the next time we see you!
Your continued support for ONE TO ONE is greatly appreciated. Thank you for helping us make our program’s virtual transformation possible.
