Enter the Not Your Average Spelling Bee in support of the United Way

Come join in a fun challenge of your spelling abilities at the Not Your Average Spelling Bee in support of the United Way. Get your teams ready and sign up.

The Not Your Average Spelling Bee will take place on Thursday, Feb. 10, from 11:30am to 1:15pm at the Underground Restaurant.

This is the third consecutive year for the event, hosted by University Events & Community Relations (UECR). It is played in Jeopardy-style format, with four-person teams from across campus competing for the title of "Best Spellers". Past winners have included teams from the Centre for Human Rights and the Secretariat.

This year’s event will be moderated by Vice-President University Relations Jennifer Sloan. All members of the York community are invited to purchase tickets for lunch ($15 for staff and faculty, $12 for students) and cheer on their favourite team.
