2021 Spelling Bee winner Naa Koshie Manyo-Plange and two other spellers alongside their parents last week were hosted by the US Ambassador to Ghana, Amb. Stephanie Sullivan at the U.S Embassy Ghana.
The spellers shared their experience and graced their visit by presenting signed souvenirs to Stephanie Sullivan.
The organizers of the spelling program in a social media post sighted by EducationWeb.com.gh expressed their gratitude to the U.S Embassy Ghana saying “We are honoured to have the support of the U.S Embassy, Our partnership with them has benefited over 8,000 students in Ghana.”
“And we look forward to a long-lasting partnership and impacting more students in Ghana,” Spelling Bee organizers added.
Naa Koshie Manyo-Plange who was speller number 15 after several rounds of the game beat her competitors in the 15th round to win the competition.
Ghana’s best speller correctly spelt the word “Amaxophobia” which means the “fear of being in or riding in a vehicle” to win the Spelling Bee trophy.
11-year-old Naa Koshie Manyo-Plange following her enormous achievement will represent Ghana at the 94th Scripps National Spelling Bee in the USA.
