The Voinjama Multilateral High Schooled fiercely fought its way through all the seven available schools of the expected nine other county-level qualifying competitors, convincingly capturing the Lofa County session of LMDI National Academic Challenge Competitions at 175 over the Foya Free Pentecostal High School at 90. The Voinjama Central High School earlier defeated the St. Joseph Catholic High School of Voinjama at 165 to 155 points to land her in the Grand Final with the Foya Free Pentecostal High School.
With her dominion over all of Lofa’s participating High Schools, the Voinjama Multilateral High School now heads to the regional qualifiers, expected soon at Gbarnga in Bong County among the three counties, Bong Lofa and Nimba in the Central region of Liberia. The Lofa qualifying rounds were held as a run-up to the relaunch of the LMDI National Academic Challenge Competitions (LMDI-NACC) which got suspended months ago because of the general lack of funds and general support and the upsurge in the presence of the Corona Virus Disease in Liberia.
With the Lofa Qualifiers held successfully, the next county in line for its qualifying rounds is Margibi County, at the near East of the Liberian capital, Monrovia. As the LMDI resumes National General Knowledge Quizzing across the nation, LMDI Director John Kollie has appealed for support to his organization’s national quizzing efforts which he says is enormously contributing to the ignition of academic excellence amongst school children across the nation.
The current sessions of quizzing are for the first time featuring the questions on the Central Bank of Liberia printing and minting of a new family of Banknotes and coins with the aim of creating general visibility on the bank and its work.LMDI Director John Kollie says the inclusion of CBL questions in the county level qualifying rounds is an innovative effort to enhance the knowledge of young Liberians on the CBL minting and printing of a new family of banknotes and coins.
