East Texas Literacy Council Spelling Bee

East Texas business representatives got together today to spell their way to the top.

It was all part of the East Texas Literacy Council's Annual Spelling Bee in Longview. Sixteen businesses took part in this year's bee. They say it's a fun way to raise money for the council's programs.

"Some teams really get into it with quite a bit of team spirit. They dress the part. They bring sound makers, noise makers and just really support their team," says Jennifer Slade, President of the Literacy Council.

The winner was Longview Greggton Rotary club.
