It was a wonderful 2day marathon competition at the Rivers State qualifier of Nigeria Spelling Bee as students converged from all over Rivers State for a chance to showcase their spelling prowess and prove themselves worthy to represent the state at subsequent levels.

The present Champion of the Nigeria Spelling Bee (Keren Chigozie-Nnah) was present to receive an Ambassadorship certificate for her outstanding achievement. It should be recalled that Keren also went on to represent Nigeria at the African Spelling Bee and also emerged the champion in the senior category.

After proving themselves, these spellers will represent Rivers at the South-South Regional level.
