To promote the study of Mathematics and Science in Ghana's secondary schools, the National Science and Maths Quiz ( NSMQ) was introduced in 1993. The competition has seen several brilliant and wonderful people from various schools across the country compete against one another for the ultimate trophy.

This year's Brong Ahafo Zonal Championship took place today, Thursday May 20, 2021. In every competition there can be one and only one winner. People feel sad and worried when their favourites do not get to be crowned champions.

The Grand Finale of the Brong Ahafo Zonal Chmapionship was between Nkoranza SHTS, St. James Sem. SHS, Sunyani SHS and Techiman SHS.

Though Nkoranza SHTS were trailing by 6 points at the end of Round 1 behind St. James Sem who had obtained 20 points. This did not discourage the contestants of Nkoranza SHTS since all was not over yet. There were still three more rounds to go. The contestants of Nkoranza SHTS pull off some magic in the second, third and last round (Round 4). They answered two riddles correctly after the second clue and this earned them 6 points in Round 4. The 6 points earned, enabled Nkoranza SHTS to surpass St. James Sem.’s 34 points which was obtained at the end of Round 3. This put Nkoranza SHTS in first place at the end of the competition. Sunyani SHS also picked the two remaining riddles which moved them to the 3rd position. St. James Sem. SHS placed second (2nd) while Techiman SHS placed fourth (4th)

Nobody had tipped Nkoranza SHTS to win the zonal championship because of the marvelous performance displayed by contestants of St. James Sem. SHS in their previous contests prior to the Grand Finale.

Congratulations to Nkoranza SHTS for winning the NSMQ Brong Ahafo Zonal Championship.
