For the avid young reader in your family Macy’s is hosting the 7th Annual Spelling Bee. In August and September, Macy’s 27 regional Spelling Bee will allow pre-teens to show they can S-P-E-L-L. Atlanta students can compete Saturday, August 25th at the Lenox Mall event.
I can remember competing in a spelling bee in elementary school. I loved to spell and took pride in showing off my talents in front of my class.
A.J. is too young to compete, but do you have an 8-11 year old who loves to read and spell? Do you think they’d love to show off too? Make sure they don’t miss the opportunity to compete in Atlanta next weekend.
