The above persons will take a written General Knowledge Aptitude Test on Saturday, September 4, 2021, at the Accra Digital Centre.

From there, the top 10 participants in the aptitude test will advance to the final stage of the contest.

The top 10 contestants will then compete in a classic quiz competition for the grand prize of GHS10,000.

‘The Literacy Challenge’ is a nationwide educational campaign that promotes literacy in Ghana.

This year, interested participants wrote an essay on the topic: “As an aspiring presidential candidate, in not less than 600 words, write a convincing manifesto speech that is intended to fix the country and to bring hope in political governance.”

Thousands of entries were received by the deadline for submission, and external examiners helped to shortlist 50 people.

For more than two months, a team from Citi FM toured various schools as part of efforts to interact with students in some parts of the country, to encourage them to participate in the 2021 edition of the Challenge.

The competition is powered by 97.3 Citi FM, with support from Citi TV.

It is sponsored by SIC Insurance PLC and the Vodafone Ghana Foundation through the Kindred partners.
