LIME Fran­co­phonie Spell­ing Bee Champs

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

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.
