The 2021 edition of Citi FM’s Literacy Challenge is gradually taking shape.
On July 12, 2021, Citi FM’s Literacy Challenge team visited the Flobar School and De Youngster’s International in Adenta, Accra.
This is part of the team’s efforts to interact with students and encourage them to partake in this year’s competition.
The team first visited Flobar International School.
Some students of the school who were elated about the competition promised to put in their entries
“There are various sectors that need fixing in the country, and this is why I would want to write and hopefully win the prize. I am confident in myself, and our teachers have been encouraging us to write more, so this will be a great test for me. I am hopeful of winning this year’s contest too,” Kekeli Kojo Akaba shared.
At De Youngster’s International School, some third-year JHS students told the team they had already submitted their essays.
Ahinei Amarteifio said, “I am very sure the winner of this year’s competition will come from my school. And of course, that will be me.”
