It was an exciting event at the Joseph Ayo Babalola University when spellers from across Osun state converged to compete in the Nigeria Spelling Bee Osun State Qualifiers. The competition started off with the spellers singing the National Anthem and then were asked to spell words from either Yoruba, Hausa or Igbo in the first round of the contest.

After 5rounds of the competition, 5 spellers emerged the State Qualifiers who will represent Osun State at the Regional Contest on Children’s Day (May 27th).

At the end of the contest, all the coaches and teachers in attendance commended the organizers for conducting a fair and transparent competition, and asked that same should be emulated by all other contests in the country.

We want to appreciate the management of Joseph Ayo Babalola University and its JABU International School for hosting the qualifiers.
