National Spelling Bee Competition

The much anticipated National Spelling Bee final lived up to the hype as each contestant put in a wonderful performance in what was a keenly contested event that lasted seven rounds. In the end, Benebo Nchege (Deeper Life High School, PH campus) emerged the winner, with Jeremiah Nnaemeka (Deeper Life High School, PH campus) and Kehinde Elegbede (Iganmode Grammar School, Ogun) finishing 1st and 2nd runner-up respectively.

These three students will move on to represent Nigeria at the African Spelling Bee competition slated for later this year in Mombassa, Kenya. Joining them are Alexa Idusuyi (Intellichild TLC, Abuja), Adeyemo Iseoluwa (Deeper Life High School, Kwara), and Jesse Azaino (Divine Mercy Secondary School, Abuja), who will be representing Nigeria in the Junior category.
