Spellebration 2019!

Spellebration 2019!

This year marks the third anniversary of the Delray Summer Spellebration! This year we have eight teams participating (so far). Spellebration is an opportunity for middle and high school students to keep their minds sharp and earn amazing prizes like an Apple iPad, or money! Participants will practice words found on SAT lists and words that adhere to our theme “A Universe of Stories”.

How to prepare:

The library has a printed list of Spelling Bee 2019 words. They are also available online (

Several of our vocabulary words came from this years Summer Reading selections. These titles are currently on display in the Teen Room. 

Middle School vocabulary words come from:
Shadowshaper by Daniel Jose Older
Life as We Knew It by Susan Pfeffer

Our High School vocabulary words come from:
Peeps by Scott Westerfield
House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer
