The Ghana Education Service has endorsed Citi Fm’s Literacy Challenge. The writing competition which has been ongoing for the past 12 years seeks to enhance Ghana’s educational system.
The Literacy Challenge is aimed at recognizing all the valuable educational related works that are undertaken within schools and communities across Ghana.
The overall winner of the competition will walk away with a cash prize of GHc10, 000.
The award is aimed at recognizing all the valuable educational related works that are undertaken within schools and communities across Ghana by schools, students/pupils, parents, media houses, publishers, agencies, NGOs and other individuals or organizations.
The topic for the challenge is “Write a letter to the President of Ghana, suggesting to him how to make Accra the cleanest city in Africa.”
In a letter issued to Citi FM, GES described the initiative as “laudable” and noted that the Literacy Challenge will afford children the opportunity of learning new things and deepen their understanding in literacy.
The 2017 Literacy Challenge is sponsored by Bic, SlydePay, Cowbell and Milky Magic biscuits.
