GA state spelling bee set for Friday

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia's top spellers in elementary and middle school will be gathering later this week for the State Spelling Bee, sponsored by the Georgia Association of Educators.

Twenty students, ages 10 to 14, from around the state will be gathering Friday at Georgia State University for the 52nd annual spelling bee.

The winner will represent Georgia in the annual Scripps National Spelling Bee, scheduled for May 28-30 in Washington, D.C.

The contestants represent districts including Rome City, Gilmer, Cobb, Gwinnett, Decatur City, Paulding, Rockdale, Henry, Bibb, Muscogee, Clarke, Dodge, Chatham, Tattnall, Colquitt and Early - along with the Georgia Independent School Association.

The winner will receive $1,000 as well as expenses for the national spelling bee, while the runner-up will receive $500.
