A team from Citi FM on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, visited Sap’s School located at Teshie-Nungua and Queensland International School at Sakumono, as part of efforts to interact with students across the country, and encourage them to participate in this year’s edition of The Literacy Challenge.
The students enthusiastically were eager to win the bragging rights as the best all-around Junior High School student in Ghana.
Speaking to a former top 10 contestant of the Literacy Challenge at Queensland International School, Selorm Korbla Kumador, he spoke highly of the competition and urged his fellow students to also be a part of the competition.
“This year’s topic is one dear to my heart, as it deals with technology and ways we can use it to make Ghana better. So I am going to write a few things and I hope to make it to the top 50, and we see where we can go from there,” a female student from Queensland International School said.
“This year’s topic is a bit difficult and that makes me highly motivated to write, and hopefully I can make it and then win the ultimate prize,” a student from Sap’s School said.
