Kenya Alcy of St. Joseph Primary School is the winner of the new Kweyol Spelling Bee Competition which ended here today.
Out of over 20 words, Alcy was able to outnumber 19 other students from various schools around the country.
Chakira Bramble of Grand Bay Primary School finished second; Chelsea Lawrence of Wesley Primary School placed third and Brendon Esprit of Campbell Primary finished fourth.
Chief Cultural Officer Raymond Lawrence says Dominicans must be resolute to preserve the Creole language.
“This further links our ancestry and ties us to our neighbours in the Caribbean,” he said.
