The Kershaw County Literacy Association will hold its third annual ‘Can You Spell Better Than A Fifth Grader? Spelling Bee’ on Thursday, Oct. 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church Family Life Center in Camden.  Fifth graders from Kershaw County schools will compete against local community and business leaders for prizes and bragging rights.  Last year’s winner, Corey Sweetenburg of Midway Elementary School, is shown with Mz. Buzzbee (a.k.a Hope Robertson, KCLA Executive Director). Corey topped 31 other fifth graders and community and business leaders; Robert Arial, nationally syndicated editorial cartoonist, was runner-up in the competition. The Kershaw County Literacy Association’s mission is to promote a literate community by providing reading and writing instruction at no charge to the nearly one in four illiterate and functionally illiterate county residents, regardless of age, gender, race or socio-economic status.  To volunteer, contact Hope Robertson at 803-669-0019 or e-mail:
