LOCAL KIDS PREPARING FOR SATURDAY'S BEE.

Byline: Daily News

WOODLAND HILLS - About 60 children from 60 Southern California Schools are expected to compete Saturday in the 18th annual Regional Spelling Bee.

The contest, sponsored locally by the Daily News, begins at 10 a.m. in the auditorium of Taft High School, 5461 Winnetka Ave. The event is open to the public.

``It's great to see these young kids compete and doing something educational for themselves,'' said Lisa Williams, community relations manager for the Daily News. ``It brings back memories to some people; they remember being in a spelling bee themselves.''

The children, from fourth through eighth grades, have already won spelling bees at their local schools, Williams said. The winner of Saturday's spelling bee and one parent will receive an all-expense-paid trip to compete in the the Scripps-Howard National Spelling Bee May 30-June 4 in Washington, D.C.

Schools participating include those from the San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita, Burbank, Glendale and some parts of the Conejo Valley and Los Angeles. All fourth- and eighth-grade students are eligible to compete, including private and home-school students.
