Hoboken Rotary Club sponsors Spelling Bee
Hoboken kids actually get dictionaries and enjoy education!
“Once again, seven Hoboken elementary schools are participating, providing their top three spellers of the 4th grade to compete, and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will take home gift certificates to Barnes and Noble.
Hoboken Rotary member Noelle Tate came up with the idea for this event when considering how to further our involvement with education in the community. Each year, we donate dictionaries to every 3rd grader in Hoboken. This event enhances this contribution while promoting literacy and education. These 4th graders each received a dictionary the previous year and they are all very excited (and nervous) to attend the Spelling Bee and compete. It’s so wonderful to see how energized the students can be for an educational event. The families also love watching and supporting the participants. We have received very positive feedback from the students, teachers, families, and community members for the past two years.”
