Great NZ Spelling Bee Finalist - Sam Thompson

Great spelling, Sam!

Stewart Tagg —

Year 10 student Samuel Thompson struck it big at the Regional Semi Final of the Great NZ Spelling Bee and won a trip for him and a member of his family to Auckland to compete in the National Final.

Up against eleven other students from all around the Otago region, Sam held his nerve and spelt like a champion. 

Awesome effort, Sam!
