The Illinois State Fair celebrated senior citizens Monday and awarded a "breakfast on a stick".Mike Kienzler won the senior spelling bee.

He says he keeps his skills sharp by practicing word lists online.

Also today, ladies showed off their style at a red hats party.

You didn't have to be senior to compete in Monday's cooking competition.

Amy Wertheim won the Breakfast On A Stick contest with her bacon and egg "swirlies," featuring an omelet wrapped with bacon then deep-fried.
