Drumkeen student Anna Kearns was bee-rilliant in the final of the Connacht and Ulster Spelling Bee on the 8th of June!
The Scoil Phádraig student made it to the final after winning the County Donegal Eason Spelling Bee Final in April.
Unfortunately, Anna missed out on the top prize but she made her family and school extremely proud.
Celebrating its tenth year, the Eason Spelling Bee provides a fun, educational outlet for school kids, encouraging them to expand their vocabulary and develop their confidence.
Group Head of Marketing at Eason, Brendan Corbett, said: “It’s a tremendous achievement and a testament to the bright-sparks of the nation.
“We’re incredibly proud to have created something that allows children to engage in an educational activity that develops their literacy, spelling, confidence and gives them so much enjoyment.”
This year, over 500 schools nationwide have competed against each other in a bid to win the coveted prize.
