The winning team from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt correctly spelled phenolphthalein. This was the fifth win for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt - a Corporate Spelling Bee record!


The Corporate Spelling Bee is a great evening of fun, food, and philanthropy. Greater Boston businesses and service providers like Eaton Vance Investment Managers, K & L Gates, Cabot Corporation, Deloitte Touche, IBM, Citibank, Cambridge Trust, and the Bank of New York Mellon field teams of spellers to compete for the Championship Cup. Attendees are treated to drinks, dinner and a few hours of entertaining competition, the proceeds from which make an enormous and ongoing difference in our communities.

Sponsorship is an investment that provides an unparalleled return because adult literacy prepares determined adults to move into the workforce with the essential skills needed in the 21st century.

Participation in the spelling bee can be a great team-building activity. Many businesses and organizations host mini-bees to extend the opportunity to the whole company. Click here to learn more about mini-bees
