Spelling bees aren't just for kids anymore.
Salina Senior Center and the city of Salina are co-sponsoring the first Senior Citizens State Wide Spelling Bee on Oct. 11 at the Bicentennial Center.
Kansas residents 50 and older by Oct. 1 may participate by paying a $5 entry fee. Participants must obtain an entry form online at www.salhelp.org/aging/spellingbee or by calling (785) 827-9818, and submit it by Sept. 14 to the Salina Senior Center.
The grand prize will be a trip for two to the National Senior Citizens Spelling Bee competition in Cheyenne, Wyo., in June 2008.
