Jody-Anne Maxwell - 1988 Spelling Bee Champion

Jody-Anne Maxwell from Kingston, Jamaica, was the winner of the 1998 Scripps National Spelling Bee at the age of 12. She was the first contestant from outside the United States and the first black person to win in the history of the competition. She qualified for the Scripps competition by winning Jamaica's National Spelling Bee championship, which her sister Janice had also won in 1990. Official gifts included a spelling bee watch; $10,000 U.S. for her to keep; a set of encyclopedias, including CD-ROM; a beautiful trophy; a trip for two from US Airways to any U.S. destination; and a $50 U.S. bond. The Caribbean Hotel Association, and another company, also awarded her an education trust fund of $11,000 (U.S).
