LIME Francophonie Spelling Bee Champs

The participants in the 2015 Secondary Schools Francophonie Spelling Bee have all come in for high praise from LIME following the successful conclusion of this year’s competition.

St. Lucia’s leading telecommunications provider was a sponsor of the event hosted by the Saint Lucia National Commission for UNESCO and the Ministry of Education in observance of International Francophonie Day. LIME is a regular sponsor of the competition, which is held annually.

Darla Willie is this year’s Francophonie Spelling Bee champion. She secured the title for Vieux Fort Comprehensive Secondary School (Beanfield) after fending off a stiff challenge from Abigail Francis of Vieux Fort Secondary School (La Resource) in the finals, last Friday at the National Cultural Centre. The two contenders stood toe to toe with contestants from other schools and slogged it out to make it through to the grand finale. Coming in at third place, was Nykisha Monrose of Corinth Secondary School.

For their gallant performance LIME rewarded the first and third place winners with a Lenovo laptop, plus 1 year’s free mobile credit and an Alcatel tablet respectively. Both devices offer a rich suite of features that are easily optimized on LIME’s robust networks.

LIME’s sponsorship of this year’s Francophonie Spelling Bee is a further demonstration of the company’s commitment to strengthening its support for education and youth development in St. Lucia. So far this year, LIME has provided well over $60,000 in financial and logistical support to school sports and other educational activities.

“It’s always exciting to be a part of the Francophonie Spelling Bee and we’re very proud to have been a sponsor,” said LIME Marketing & Communications Executive, Sharlene Jn. Baptiste. “We wish to commend the organizers for an excellent job in hosting the event and congratulate the participants for their excellent performance.”

The annual Francophonie Spelling Bee Championship is organized by The National Committee for the Francophonie, under the auspices of the Saint Lucia National Commission for UNESCO, Ministry of Education, Human Resource Development and Labour.
