After a year, the annual Spelling Bee Contest has returned! On the 27th of July, the entire Library Club traveled down to Woodlands Regional Library to support Hwa Chong’s representatives in the final round of the 2012 Spelling Bee Contest. The HCI competitors are Chin Kee Yong (4I104), 2nd runner up of the previous edition of the Spelling Bee Contest, and Ernest (4P2).

According to the NLB website: “The Spelling Bee aims to build up student vocabulary, encourage correct word usage and pronunciation and enable students to be precise and say what they mean. […] Through this event, not only will students get to showcase their talents, they will also be able to gain self-confidence through this healthy competition.”

The event started off with the audience participation round, which gave the audience a chance to participate and try to spell a given word correctly. Prizes were awarded for correctly spelt words. Many students from various schools participated in this round and won themselves attractive prizes!

Students from different schools competed in the final round of the Spelling Bee Contest. Despite strong competition from powerhouses like Raffles Institution and Nanyang Girls’ High School, Chin Kee Yong managed to emerge as Champion and was officially crowned Spelling Master 2012! He fended off strong challenges from Raffles Institution, whose students completed the top 3 standings. Ernest also put up a valiant effort, spelling many tough words. Alas, he was eliminated in the round where up to 6 competitors got eliminated as well.

Big congratulations go to Kee Yong and Ernest for putting up a strong showing in such a tough and hotly-contested competition! Kudos go to all the other participants who have definitely put in their best efforts to be able to get so far in the contest!
