Mr. George Nkonsah, Area Business Development Manager, BIC Ghana Cluster, one of the sponsors of the event, will take the kids through the art of thinking on your feet.

They will also be allowed to undergo some personal reflections, after which they will spend some time with the Quiz Mistress, Ms. Yaba Haffar, an Educationist, before the grand finale quiz competition itself at 10:00am on Saturday.

Out of the 10 contestants, eight are from schools in the Greater Accra Region, whereas the other two are from schools in Brong Ahafo and Upper West Regions.

About the Literacy Challenge

The Literacy Challenge was launched on July 19, 2017, for JHS students in Ghana, who were tasked to write and suggest to the president how to make Accra the cleanest city in Africa.

After over 2,000 entries were submitted, external examiners marked the scripts and selected the top 50 who went to the British Council to write the aptitude test.

The Literacy Challenge is sponsored by BIC Pen, Milky Magic Biscuit, Cowbell and Slydepay.
