KINGSTON, Jamaica:

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.
