Spelling is hard. But for those who think they could keep up with the Scripps National Spelling Bee champions (last year's 14-year-old winner had to spell the word "koinonia"), a new Adult Spelling Bee contest is taking place in Cleveland Wednesday, May 29.

Put together by Minds Matters Cleveland, the event is being held at Market Garden Brewery. Anyone (21+ only) wishing to buzz into the competition should sign up early, as spots are limited. There is however room for any and all spectators.

Cost is $25, or $30 the day of to compete and the Top 3 finishers do receive a prize.

Find out more about the event, which starts at 6:30 p.m., and sign up right here. Registration closes at 5 p.m. the day of the competition.
