It was a spelling duel to the finish when the 2011 National Spelling Bee competition went into sudden death Friday, Feb. 18, at Beaches Resort and Spa on Providenciales.

The room was filled with tension when the final round came down to Akia Guerrier and Renard Brown of Richmond Hills, but nothing could shake Guerrier, who spelled all of her words correctly, more than 50 throughout the competition.

Guerrier, who is Little Miss Enid Capron, spelled infinitesimal to add Spelling Bee Champion to her list of titles, outspelling all of her 16 competitors during the two-day competition.

Guerrier took home not only the title of 2011 Spelling Bee Champion but also a laptop computer, courtesy of LIME.

The Spelling Bee was made possible in great part to sponsorship from British Financial Services Ltd.
