The competition is intense. The words are ridiculous. Let the spelling begin!

As a special treat to help celebrate our own 25th Anniversary, FRC is proud to present the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a hilarious tale of overachievers’ angst chronicling the spelling championship of a lifetime.

Life is Pandemonium
