For those adults who have the superpower of being able to spell just about any word, Wisconsin is home for the perfect contest for them.

Spelling Bees Are More Popular Than You Would Think

Spelling bees weren't something I looked forward to in school. Mainly, because I wasn't very good at it. I was usually out after a couple of rounds. Then I had to sit around while the other students continued in the contest.

Once I got out of school, I never thought of spelling bees again. Recently, I found out that a friend of mine has a party every year for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. It's very popular and a big deal. It's televised on national TV. I'm guessing that group would love to participate in one if the opportunity came up.
