8. Bible Bee: Some Host Territories Still Available

The Shelby Kennedy Foundation wants to give as many children as
possible the opportunity to participate in the 2010 Bible Bee and be
encouraged, recognized and rewarded for delving deeply into the study
of God's Word, memorizing Scripture, and praying. The only limitation
to youth enrollment is the number of local hosts, so if there is no
open local bee within 30 miles of you, or they are all full, you may
still volunteer to be a local host. All of the guidance and materials
you need will be supplied.
