Six schools competing in this year’s National Science & Maths Quiz (NSMQ) Championship have received the GOIL Riddle Bonanza cash prize for excelling in the Round of Riddles in the contest.
The schools, spread across the Northern, Bono-Ahafo, Western Zones as well as the Greater Accra and Eastern regions, are Bolgatanga SHS; St. Thomas Aquinas SHS; Odorgonno SHS; Tamale SHS; Mpraeso SHS, Krobo Girls’ SHS and Sunyani SHS.
So far, it is left with only the Volta- Oti Zone to complete the Preliminary Stage contests of the competition.
The NSMQ comprised five rounds, with the last round, being the Riddles. Round One is on general questions on Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Mathematics whereas Round Two deals with the Speed Race. Round Three is on the Problem of the Day whilst Round Four is limited to True or False questions.
The school that is able to get all the four questions under the Riddles receive GHC1,200 whilst those that get 3/4 receive GHC800 in the Preliminary Stage of the contest. The prize money is reviewed upwards as the contest progresses to the next stages.
