Caldwell Quizzing Tournament Begins Today



— As CAVIRD reawakens, and restores the township’s positive values that have been lost over the years  

The leadership of Caldwell Visionaries for Restoration and Development (CAVIRD) will on today launch a township "Meet the Challenge" quiz tournament with the participation of 10 schools.

CAVIRD was established in August 2021 and is geared towards ensuring a broader participation of all friends of Caldwell for the growth and development of the township.

The tournament, according to CAVIRD, will nurture students through public speaking and academic excellence, as well as bring pride to the township as one of the best in the realm of academics in Liberia.

In a statement issued on February 15, the group said the tournament is a flagship program of the CAVIRD that is aimed at promoting a culture of academic excellence and competitiveness amongst different learning institutions within the township.

However, the goal of the organization, which is made up of Caldwell's professional sons and daughters, is to reawaken and restore the township’s positive values and practices that have been lost over the years.

The organization also noted that the entertaining quiz tournament will welcome Greater Harvest School against Garden of Prayer; Redemption will tackle Bethel Upper Caldwell as well as Howard Academy versus Elizabeth Tubman Memorial Institute (ETMI) at the conference hall of the St. Maria Goretti in Upper Caldwell, Samukai Town. 

In other matches, SIMS Community High School will come face to face with St. Maria Goretti, while Zion Assembly of God will battle True Vine Institute.

This phase is a mock-up of what will happen in phase two, which will bring students face-to-face with one another in what promises to be an exciting academic challenge.

At the end of the grand finale competition, certificates of participation and other laurels will be awarded to all participating teams, including the best quizzer in each category, the most valuable quizzer, and the winning teams of the grand finale.

It is expected to kick off on Friday, February 17–27, 2023.
