In the National Finals of The Spelling Bee held on 2nd Feb 2019, DPS International Ghana lifted the trophy and brought it home back after the hiatus of three years. This is the fourth time DPS International has grabbed the trophy since the edition of 2013. Kwebena Darko Asare, a student of grade VIII topped the Vocabulary round scoring 91 out of 95 closely followed by Denielle Adzanku, Raj Mukesh Thakwani and Akshaya Lakshika of DPS again as among the toppers in the same round. The competition saw 380 students from all around Ghana and this humongous number gradually trickled down to 16 spellers in Round 4 with Kwebena, Raj, Jeremy and Akshaya still going steadfast as they tackled challenging words, but Kwebena showcased his mastery of the language with correct spellings of acyclovir. As the rounds dragged on, the pool whittled down and finally Kwabena emerged as the winner after correctly spelling *Baldenfreude*which means Satisfaction derived from the misfortune of bald or balding individuals. Jeremy settled for the position of the Second - Runner Up.
