Such is the case of Amor Wilson who recently stunned Prince George’s County by fighting off competition in the recently concluded spelling bee.

The 2021 edition of the spelling bee was the first of its kind virtual competition, featuring history-making contestants — all of whom attend middle schools in Prince George’s County. Sponsored by the Informer, the competition has become increasingly popular over the years, serving as a way of saluting and supporting participating students and their talents.

Amor has continued to receive accolades from different quarters, especially with his family, and loved showering him with lots of praise for his stellar performance. “My son Amor is a brilliant child he strives to be the best even if he forgets to do chores and clean his room,” his mom said.

He is very driven when no one pushes him,” said his dad.

I’m just happy he won and will keep winning.” – Little brother.

In addition to the prizes, Amor will receive from The Informer and other sponsors. He will also be heading to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Orlando, Fla. in July to compete in the nationally televised event for which he will represent Prince George’s County.
