The top 10 students who have qualified to compete in the final stage of the 2022 edition of ‘The Literacy Challenge’ organised by Citi FM have been announced.
It was announced on the Citi Breakfast Show on Monday, August 15, 2022.
The 10 were drawn from the group of 50 Junior High School students who wrote a mandatory Aptitude Test at the Accra Digital Centre last Saturday, August 13, 2022.
The top 10 participants will advance to the final stage of the contest.
By making it to the final, the top 10 contestants will compete in a classic quiz competition for the grand prize of GH¢10,000.
For the 2022 edition, interested participants were to submit an essay on the topic, “You have been appointed as an advisor to the Minister of Communications and Digitalization. In not less than 600 words, you are required to write to the Minister, advising on how Ghana can deploy technology for poverty reduction and national development.”
Over 1000 entries were received by the deadline for submission, and external examiners assessed the scripts for the selection of the best 50 participants.
