About Literacy Challenge
The Literacy Challenge is aimed at recognizing and rewarding the efforts of the overall best JHS student, in Ghana. There are three different levels of the competition. At the first level, participants take part in the essay competition.

At level two, the fifty participants who have been selected will be required to take an aptitude test.

The number will further be reduced to ten, for a quiz competition on the third level.

The Literacy Challenge also seeks to engage contestants in a three-month-long, fun-packed, and education-driven set of activities, which will propel young Ghanaians to develop literacy skills beyond just reading and writing.

The 2018 Literacy Challenge is sponsored by Edifund by Databank and MoneyGram with support by CITI TV.
