The second edition of the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Foundation’s Community Reading Challenge is scheduled to begin today, March 29, 2022, with four thousand six hundred and twenty (4, 620) students.
Out of the number of registered students who will partake in the 2022 edition of the Reading Challenge (OCRC), 3,003 representing 65% are females whilst 1,617 representing 35% are males.
They hail from some nine hundred and seventy (970) schools from sixteen (16) districts in the Ashanti Region.
“Promoting English and Twi reading in Asanteman”, is the theme for this year’s competition as against last year’s theme of “Promoting English and Twi Reading among JHS Students”.
The competition rides on three different stages beginning with the Community Stage which kicks start today at Nkawie followed by Abuakwa on March 30, Tanoso on March 31 and Nyankyerenease on April 1, where the over 4,000 students battle it out to the Kick-Out Stage which has only 60 slots.
The students will then seek spaces at the Grand Finale where the ultimate winner will be crowned.
Last year’s winner, George Dame of the Anomangye community manoeuvred his way to win the ultimate trophy after beating Yvette Asamoah of Krofrom, Salisu Abigail of Apatrapa, Prescilla Marfo of Tafo and Godfred Asumadu of Asokwa in the Grand finale.
This year’s challenge promises to be exciting, educational and impactful.
Konahene Nana Konadu Yiadom Kumanin IV will offer a 30,000 cedis cash package to community winners while the Tredehene Nana Nuben Sra III will also hand out a 30, 000 cedis cash package to schools that will sail through at the community level.
