Vakpo Senior High School in the Volta region will today, June 18 begin their journey to win the coveted trophy at stake in the National Science and Maths Quiz.

The debutants who caused a huge stir at the regional level contest of the NSMQ will square off with Abuakwa State College from the Eastern region and Fijai SHS from the Western region.

Despite being at the national level for the first time, Team VASEC is leaving no stone unturned to progress to the next level of the competition as far as this mornings contest is concerned.

The contest will be held at the R.S Amegashie Auditorium Legon campus of the University of Ghana.


Each day, three contests will be held at two venues simultaneously and the winners of the 36 contests, together with 18 highest scoring losing schools, will join the 27 seeded schools for the One-eighth stage.

The venues for the competition are the R.S Amegashie Auditorium and the New ‘N’ Block, both on the Legon campus of the University of Ghana.

Yesterday, Apam Senior High School from the Central region and Chemu SHS in Tema qualified for the one eighth stage after winning their respective contests.
