Do you think you've got what it takes to beat Stephen Fry at reverse spelling? Stephen Fry ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Fry ) is challenging the world to compete against him in a live reverse Spellathon for charity. Spread over three live games: Stephen vs. Primary/Elementary children, Stephen vs. Secondary/Middle/High School students and Stephen vs. Adults, the online event sees individuals from each category spell backwards as many words as they can in 15 minutes. Those who beat Stephen's score receive a certificate. In order to qualify for the challenge, people must create a Spellathon profile at www.spellathon.net and raise £15 for Mencap before 1st February 2012. 25% of all funds raised by the pupils go to their School, College or University Union. http://www.spellathon.net
