We are happy to announce that the first set of National Finalists have emerged as top spellers across all the South-Eastern converged at Obosi for the South-East Regional Level Qualifier of the Nigeria Spelling Bee.

The competition which was hosted at Divine Rays British School was a fierce battle of words as the best spellers from Enugu, Imo, Abia, Anambra and Ebonyi states all did their very best to emerge as the Finalists to represent the region at the National Finals.

In addition to the One Million Naira and Give Hundred Thousand Naira scholarship for the National Senior and Junior Champions, National Finalists also stand to represent Nigeria at the African Spelling Bee and also win other prizes.
