Literacy Challenge: Citi FM engages students of Victory Presby JHS
Citi FM’s Literacy Challenge team is still on the road engaging with students of some Junior High schools as part of this year’s edition.
The team visited the Victory Presbyterian School in Adenta on Wednesday to sensitize the students on why and how to enter the competition.
The 2018 edition of the Literacy Challenge, which was launched on the 6th of June will see JHS students go through three different stages of the competition with the hopes of walking away with a grand cash prize of ten thousand cedis.
Citi FM’s Magdalene engaged students in a question and answer session where winners were awarded souvenirs.
The Literacy Challenge is a Citi FM initiative that seeks to engage students in solving societal problems through writing to improve their writing skills.
As part of the Challenge, JHS students are expected to write an essay on the topic: “The year is 2035; the law allows people below forty (40) years to contest for the presidency. You are a presidential candidate in the general election. In not less than 600 words, write your manifesto speech.”
In stage two, 50 contestants across Ghana will be shortlisted for a general knowledge quiz out of which the number of candidates will be reduced to 10.
At stage three, the ten contestants will battle for the Grand Prize of GHc10, 000 in a classic competition, “quizmaster/mistress and contestants style.”
The manifesto speech should be in the candidate’s handwriting and must be endorsed by their parent or guardian.
It must be addressed to the Literacy Challenge P. O. Box 14123 Accra Central or dropped at the front desk of Citi FM, Adabraka, Accra.
Deadline for entries is August 10, 2018.
The 2018 edition of the Literacy Challenge is sponsored by Databank’s EdiFund and MoneyGram.
