Come join us at PopCon for the return of the fan-favorite Geeky Spelling Bee! The Spelling Bees will be happening all weekend long, and they are your chance to win amazing prizes, including 2019 PopCon passes, PopCon swag, and the Grand Prize: a 2019 PopCon 3-Day Pass with Full VIP privileges and a special celebrity-related item that’s too cool to spoil by telling you what it is!
Geeky Spelling Bees will be happening all weekend long at the show! The two different types of Bees are:
- “Flash” Spelling Bees: happening all weekend long, these “pop-up” competitions will occur at random times and locations – previous flash Bees have taken place at the food court, at the podcasting stage, and even in a few celebrities’ booths with the celebs as guest judges! The only way to get a 5-10 minute notice on where & when they will be is to listen close to the announcements at the show, or follow PopCon on their Facebook and Twitter pages for a heads-up as well! Each Flash Bee will be themed (fake examples: super heroes, Doctor Who, anime, etc.) and will take 8 contestants. The winner of each Flash Bee will receive a random prize and gets an automatic entry into the Championship Bee!
- Championship Bee: At 3:00pm on Sunday on the Main Stage, 20 people total will get the chance to participate in the Championship; some spots will be filled by the Flash Bee winners, and the rest of the spots will be filled by random draw. Each round of the Championship will have a different theme, and players will be single-eliminated until there are two contestants left, who will then go round-by-round until the Champion is determined!
Championship Prizes will be awarded to Fifth Place through First Place:
- GRAND PRIZE to the Championship Winner: a 2017 PopCon 3-Day Pass with Full VIP privileges and a special celebrity-related item!
- SECOND PLACE wins a 2019 PopCon 3-Day Pass
- THIRD PLACE wins a 2019 PopCon 1-Day Pass
- FOURTH PLACE wins a 2019 PopCon 1-Day Pass
- FIFTH PLACE wins a 2019 PopCon 1-Day Pass
Prove that you’ve got what it takes to not only know pop-culture, but how to spell it out as well. See you at PopCon for fun, friendship, and the Geeky Spelling Bee!
