    A year 10 student from Marlborough Boys' College has been crowned New Zealand's top speller


    George Turner has won this year's Spelling Bee champion - triumphing over hundreds of students from more than 100 schools.

    The 14 year old - who was runner-up in the national competition last year - takes home 5,000 dollars to put towards future education.

    He won the competition by correctly spelling the word 'frankincense'.
