Spelling Bee finals down to top two contenders
Jermaine Francis, Staff Reporter
One boy and one girl are now battling to take home The Gleaner's Children's Own Spelling Bee trophy.
They are: Clarendon's Tajuan Gibbison and Kingston's Chaunte Blackwood.
Javane Johnson from St Catherine was the last speller to spell a word incorrectly.
Blackwood, a runner-up last year, has been crowned the champion girl.
Their coach Reverend Glen Archer told The Gleaner earlier that he expects a nail-biting finish between his two remaining contestants, Blackwood and Gibbison.
Both Blackwood and Gibbison were finalists in last year's staging of the competition.
This morning, 14 finalists - nine boys and five girls - began the spelldown.
