The Missoula County Spelling Bee is coming up and is a longstanding educational competition that has been enjoyed by many throughout the years.

February 22nd at Sentinel High School's Margaret Johnson Theater there will be students on stage trying to move on to the next phase. The show is going to be at 3:30pm.

Spelling was one of my favorite things when I was in 3rd grade. I remember really enjoying and excelling at it. Now though with so much spell check and haste I feel as if I am losing that and I am sure I am not alone. Encouraging kids to partake in these activities is helpful and can help battle the use of technology.
