Accra-based Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School (PRESEC) has emerged winner of the 2020 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ).
This becomes the sixth time the school has won the prestigious trophy after winning it five times in 1995, 2003, 2006, 2008 and 2009.
Aside the thrill of winning probably the most coveted trophy by Senior High Schools across the breadth and length of the country, is the total sum of monies PRESEC bagged as winners of this year’s NSMQ that is of peculiar interest to norvanreports.
An observation by norvanreports, reveal that the school bagged a whooping total sum of Ghs 335, 200 – this excludes other prizes given each of the three participating students in the form of travel packages and free medical care for 1 year.
Below is a breakdown of the prizes given to PRESEC at the end of the contest:
Absa Money Zone Prize – Ghs 3,600
AirtelTigo Highest Scorer – Ghs 10,000
Academic City University College Scholarship – $40,000 (Ghs 233,600) to Daniel Gakpetor
Professor Marian Ewurama Addy Award for Best Team – Ghs 3,000
Eugene Arhin Speed Award – Ghs 5,000
Absa Special Excellence Award – Ghs 40,000
Overall Prize for winning NSMQ 2020 – Ghs 40,000
Adisadel College and Opoku Ware Senior High School on the other hand, took home Ghs 20,000 and Ghs 30,000 as the overall prize for placing second and third respectively.
This year’s NSMQ saw a huge surge in sponsorship from both Government and private institutions and individuals, this then explains the huge amount bagged by the school.
We at norvanreports believe the amount is well deserved and we say congratulations to the Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School (PRESEC).
