Sip and Spell

Event Dates and Times

2/23/2018 - Starts: 5:30 PM
Masonic Center Ballroom
Registration is now open for the first-ever Peter White Public Library Adult Sip and Spell: A Spelling Bee for Cheaters! The event will be held Friday February 23, 2018 at the UP Masonic Center. Teams of up to 4 people (ages 21 and over only, please) may register for $100.00 per team.

This isn’t your average spelling bee--this is a CHEATER’S spelling bee! Contestants can purchase cheats to advance their game. Cheat prices range from $5.00 to $500.00 with cheats like skip a word, buy your way back in the competition, advance directly to final round (while wearing a bee suit for the duration of the event), 30 seconds with a dictionary, give word to an opponent and a probable favorite: make up your own word.

Team Sign-in starts at 5:30 pm the Bee starts at 7:00 pm sharp!

In the first rounds, teams will spell together with a white board and are eliminated when they get two words wrong. When six teams remain, we’ll move on to the final rounds where contestants will compete as individuals.

A winner will eventually emerge and a team will also be crowned with an award for team spirit. Costumes are encouraged! A cash bar featuring Blackrocks Brewery selections, wine and soft drinks will be available.

Register online at: www.eventbrite.com/e/peter-white-public-library-sip-and-spell-tickets-42042608574 or at the PWPL circulation desk, via email at heather@uproc.lib.mi.us or phone (906)226-4305.

People over age 21 wishing to spectate and imbibe may attend for $15.00 admission payable at the door. More information is available on the PWPL Facebook Event or at www. pwpl.info.

Proceeds from Sip & Spell go to the Peter White Public Library Development Fund to benefit the PWPL collections, programs and services.

Career and Technical Education Month

Event Dates and Times

2/1/2018 - 2/28/2018
Nationwide
Career and Technical Education Month®, or CTE Month®, is a public awareness campaign taking place each February to celebrate the value of CTE and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country.

One way we are celebrating CTE month in Marquette and Alger Counties this February is by recognizing teachers, students, individuals and community organizations who enhance CTE by contributing to the improvement, promotion, development, quality and progress of CTE. The Marquette Alger CTE committee, whose main focus is helping young people make the best possible career decisions, is sponsoring these awards. In addition to the aforementioned categories, students presenting the best showcase display and poster design at their schools will also be recognized.

Watch and listen for more information and contests throughout the month, and beyond, on Facebook, Twitter and other media outlets. https://www.facebook.com/ctemarquettealger/
