It is WALC’s mission to empower people to improve their individual literacy skills and promote community awareness of literacy issues. All of our literacy services are provided free of charge to our clients. We cannot do that without financial support of community partners through grants and fundraisers.
Every November, we gather all of our smartest friends from the community and host the Wichita Adult Literacy Council’s Annual Adult Spelling Bee. Businesses and non-profits from all over Wichita Falls join in this fun event by providing their best spellers for teams. The teams then all compete to see who will be the WORD CUP CHAMPIONS. Spelling Bee 2016 raised over $23,000 to continue the services we offer.
This year’s Spelling Bee celebrate 35 years of WALC serving Texoma’s literacy needs. Join us on Friday, November 10th, 2017 for a spectacular word-filled evening!
