Midland Need to Read is hosting its first-ever adult spelling bee, but this event comes with a twist: cheating is not only welcomed but encouraged.

The event is being held as a fundraiser for the adult literacy program Midland Need to Read provides. 

Teams who participate in the event can raise money to earn cheats. The minimum is $500 per team member (totaling $2,000) and amounts raised above that can unlock cheats including the ability to ask for an easier word or to consult a dictionary.
