A small admission fee will be charged, and there will be prizes for the winners.
Richard Albert is spelling champ
Richard Albert, son of Mr. and Mrs. J.S. Albert of Grovetown, won the spelling championship at Harlem High School. This is the initial step that leads toward the selection of the national champion at Washington, D.C.
The National Spelling Bee is sponsored in Georgia by The Atlanta Journal and will give a $25 "E" Savings Bond to each county winner.
