A newly formed educational initiative under the banner, “Seranon Education Foundation,” has organized series of quizzing competitions for school-going children in and around Monrovia.
The foundation’s executive director, Ms. Jemah Seranon Sharpe, told the Daily Observer in an exclusive interview over the weekend that the foundation’s program is aimed at strengthening the minds of school-going children, who now loiter in neighborhoods due to the closure of school in wake of the Ebola outbreak.
The planned quizzing competition, according to Ms. Sharpe, will begin on November 28 and end on November 29, 2014, when each of the expected participants will receive a certificate.
Before arriving at that, Ms Sharpe said all those willing to participate had October 5 to October 12 to register (free-of-charge).
“All participants are selected from 4th grade to grade 6th where each member will present a valid school identification card before being qualified to sit the quiz.”
The exercise will be hosted under the theme, “Making the Difference in Education” and will be held at the youth center near Logan Town, Bushrod Island.
“This contest is planned purposely for our young brothers and sisters who are tired of sitting at home and being out of school due to the Ebola outbreak.”
As such, Ms. Sharpe strongly believes that the competition will enable the school-going kids to improve their individual and collective academic standard.
