Sen. Coons Taking Part in Spelling Bee Hosted by National Press Club

Sep 18, 2013 -- 11:49am

Senator Chris Coons will be taking part in a spelling bee tonight.

Senator Coons will be one of nine members of Congress who’ll be competing in the National Press Club’s Centennial Spelling Bee. The competition pits nine lawmakers against nine Washington journalists. It’s a reprise of the first “Best Speller in the United States” competition that was originally held in 1913.

Proceeds from the competition will benefit the National Press Club’s non-profit Journalism Institute. The competition will begin at 8 o’clock at the National Press Club on 14th Street Northwest in Washington.
