“WHO’S MOVING AND WHO’S DROPPING”…The Government of Liberia owned J. W. Pearson Public High School of Ganta/ Gompa City in Nimba County one of three high schools that turned up for the City’s qualifying rounds has qualified for the final for the Nimba County championship in the National Academic Challenge Competition ( NACC) or the National Quizzing Competition of the Liberia Media for Democratic Initiatives (LMDI).
At Ganta yesterday, Wednesday, the J. W. Pearson High School triumphed over the two other schools, the Ganta United Methodist High School (GUMS) and the Francis Marweah Public High School after an earlier narrow loss of 170 points to the GUMS at 180 in the first match of the city’s qualifying rounds.
The J. W. Pearson now travels to Sanniquellie today to meet the finalist for Sanniquellie and the rest of Upper Nimba County after their qualifying rounds which get underway this morning at Sanniqiiuellie City, the capital of Nimba County.
Following the Nimba County qualifying rounds on Thursday at Sanniquellie, the central regional LMDI qualifying competition in the National Academic Challenge Competition will take a break for the latest edition of the LMDI People to People media and community outreach forum named and styled THE DIALOGUE on Natural Resource Governance in Liberia at YEKEPA in Nimba County on tomorrow Friday.
The Central Region qualifying rounds will then resume on Monday next week with Bong County’s session where another set of schools will compete for Bong’s only space to the regional LMDI-NACC qualifying rounds.
Margibi County County, closer to urban Liberia from the Central Region will be the last of this latest leg of the LMDI journey to complete the Year Four (4) session of the LMDI National Academic Challenge Competition.
The LMDI-NACC sessions nationwide are conducted under the organization’s child and youth sensitive People to People media and community outreach blended platform, TOMORROW’S PEOPLE, one of three run by the LMDI. The other two platforms are THE DIALOGUE and DUCOR DEBATES.
LMDI Director John Kollie says the latest conduct of the National Academic Challenge Competition is marred by a grim lack of resources to sustain the set of competitions, the nation’s only nationwide all inclusive academic brain teasing games for Liberian school children and youths of all levels.
The LMDI-NACC is inclusive of High School General Knowledge Quizzing for Boys and Girls, Spelling Bee and Multiplication table competition for primary school children across the nation.
