2023 REGISTRATION OPENED

2023 Registration Opened.

Nana Marfo Akuoko Manuel Wins The Forth Edition of The Junior Speller

The much-anticipated grand finale of this year’s Junior Speller Competition takes place in a grand style. The highly competitive contest between learners from different schools drawn from various  parts of the country saw both trophies leaving the capital to the Ashanti and Central Regions respectively. As expected, the contest was held in two sessions. There was the contest for learners in basic 1-4 and that of those in basic 5-9.

There were 70 finalists in the seniors contest who were all poised for the trophy. After the first two rounds of the contest, it became difficult to predict the winner since it was obvious that all spellers stand equal chances of winning. There were spellers who were champions at the quarter final and the semi final stages of the contest and these were the ones people were expecting to carry the day. 

It became obvious at this point that there is going to be a champion from ‘the blues’. It was in this round that we had Akuako Marfo and Bishop Paul Obeng of Martyrs of Uganda Jubilee School Santasi- Kumasi, Theodora Akua Donkor of Theolina Academy, Ashaiman and Kwadwo Koranteng Boateng of Eden Hills International School, Kuntunse sailing through successfully.

In the final round we had only Akuoko Marfo spelling his word ‘PAEDOMORPHOSIS’ right hence becoming the 2022 champion for the basic 5-9 category.

Congratulations Nana Marfo Akuoko Manuel !!!

Nana Yaa Benewaa Mensah Wins The National Junior Speller For Basic 1 - 4

The basic 1-4 category of the Junior Speller Spelling contest was introduced by the Born Heroes Foundation after they realised and consultation with various schools that spelling is a challenge for the basic 1-4 learners. Knowing that it would be absolutely difficult for the basic one students to compete with basic 5-9 learners. Although we still see that it is not easy for the basic 1 learner to compete with the basic 4 but we always see it as a way for the basic one learner to gain more experience.

The story in the juniors’s category was not different at all. The champions from the various groups in the quarter final and the semi final fell off, allowing Nana Yaa Benewaa Mensah of Our Lady Of Holy Cross School in the Gomoa East of the Central Region to carry the day. The first, second and third runners up were from the same school. Congratulations to all finalists for putting up such a competitive contest.

Miss Nana Yaa spelt “HEDGEHOG” in the final round to win the contest. People couldn’t hold their joy when she spelt it right. 

Congratulations Nana Yaa Benewaa Mensah.
