Jamaica’s spelling bee champion – Deneiro Hines will be aiming for glory when he competes in the 90th annual Scripps National Spelling Bee this week in Washington, D.C.

Hines, a 7th grade student of Glenmuir High was crowned the 58th National Spelling Bee Champion earlier this year after correctly spelling E-P-A-N-A-L-E-P-S-I-S.

He will be competing against children between the ages of 5 and 15 in the preliminary round of this year’s Scripps National Spelling Bee.

And if Hines wins the competition, he will be only the second non-American to earn the trophy in the history of the competition.

Jody-Anne Maxwell from Kingston, Jamaica was the only other non-American to win the competition. Maxwell won the prestigious competition in 1998.
