COMPETITIVE: Lucy Jessep and her trophy.
Lucy is a top speller
•From page 1 New Zealand Spelling Bee founder Janet Lucas said the nail-biting final was fitting for a competition in which the talent was stronger than ever. “Lucy did incredibly well to triumph in such a strong field. This was the toughest and longest competition we have ever had. We have seen some truly amazing spelling today.” “The New Zealand Spelling Bee is fiercely competitive in a fun way. It’s a sport with an intellectual focus – students train and prepare to compete, and it’s clear from the excellent results that they trained hard.” The finalists won their places out of a field of hundreds of year 9 and 10 students. The rigorous competition began with a written classroom test, followed by six regional semi-finals.
