The Literacy Challenge team comprising staff of Citi FM on Monday, July 19, 2021, ended its tour of Junior High Schools in Accra ahead of the deadline for the submission of entries.
The tour, aimed at introducing Junior High School students to the topic for this year’s contest as well as encouraging them to participate, ended at the Rect Academy in Kwashie-Bu, Accra.
Students of the school told the Citi FM team they have already submitted their essays.
They are confident of winning the bragging right as this year’s Literacy Champions.
Tracey Opare, a final-year JHS student of the school, said, “I have started writing, and I believe my points are intriguing enough to get me to the next stage. I look forward to making it through the second stage and ultimately winning the competition.”
“It will be very exciting to win the competition and that is what I aim for,” Seth Kobby Adjei shared.
The Literacy challenge team toured 34 schools this year.
Meanwhile, the deadline for the submission of entries is Friday, July 23,2021.
