Town-Wide Spelling Bee
Connecticut Junior Women, Inc., sponsors an annual State Spelling Bee for students in 5th & 6th grades in participating
cities and towns.
The State Spelling Bee is representative of the goals of CJW in that it shows support for both public and private education.
Local CJW clubs work with their Boards of Education, private educational systems and other educational organizations to assure
the most productive and beneficial curriculum is obtained for all students. Spelling bees show the knowledge students acquire
each day through their studies.
CJW clubs offer assistance in running school spelling bees, as well as the local city or town spelling bee. Students in
5th and 6th grade compete in classroom spelling bees, then in a school-wide spelling bee. Each school sends two winners and
an alternate to the local spelling bee; two winners and an alternate represent cities and towns in the CJW State Spelling
The CJW Spelling Bee is usually held in early April.

"Covenant to Care for Children mobilizes and channels the generosity of caring and faithful people to advocate for, mentor
and provide direct assistance to Connecticut's children and youth who are neglected, abused or at-risk."
About Covenant to Care
Covenant to Care for Children mobilizes and channels the generosity of caring and faithful people to advocate for, mentor
and provide direct assistance to Connecticut's children and youth who are neglected, abused or at-risk.
Covenant to Care for Children works to create a future where all Connecticut children have caring families and safe places
to live and all caring and faithful people demonstrate their own personal commitment to the welfare of children.
Covenant to Care for Children is more than just a name, it is a core part of how we approach our service to the abused, neglected
and at-risk children and youth of Connecticut. Through our Adopt a Social Worker Program, faith-based organizations sign a
covenant in which they promises to care and provide for our children in a particular Social worker's caseload. These caring
and faithful people provide those things that go above and beyond what the State can provide and often these gifts from the
spirit allow a family to stay together or reunite.
