It was a wonderful day as the Nigeria Spelling Bee team was in Oke-Aro, Ogun State to present the African Spelling Bee trophy (replica) to Eniola Grace Idowu of Montclair College who emerged best 2nd in the Junior category of the 2019 African Spelling Bee in Uganda.
Eniola was also presented with a plaque as the “Most Outstanding Speller of the 2019 Season” for her exceptional spelling prowess.
The Honourable Commissioner of Education for Ogun State (represented by the Zonal Education Officer (Ifo) Mr Lasilo) received the trophy on behalf of Ogun State for onward presentation to Montclair College and Eniola.
While appreciating the organizers of the Nigeria Spelling Bee, the Honourable Commissioner also urged other organizations and bodies to encourage education by rewarding hard work.
As you will remember, Eniola was the Junior Champion of the 2019 Season of the Nigeria Spelling Bee where she won a #100,000 cash prize and an all-expenses-paid trip to represent Nigeria at the African Spelling Bee in Jinja – Uganda.
The Nigeria Spelling Bee will also be presenting other African Spelling Bee champion trophies to winning schools in other states of the country.
