The National Championship of the 2021 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) will kick start later in October to November 2021.
The NSMQ 2021 National Championship will be held in Accra at a decided venue Primetime Limited.
In the Savannah Region of Ghana, Damongo SHS has qualified to participate in the 2021 NSMQ National Championship.
Below is the list of the qualified schools in the
Savannah Region compiled by NSMQ Stats:
- Damongo SHS
Nkoranza SHTS has defied all odds to emerge Champions in the first maiden edition of the Bono-Ahafo Zonal Championship of the 2021 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ).
Thursday’s finale involved St. James Seminary SHS, Nkoranza SHTS, Sunyani and Techiman SHS.
Ahead of the contest, supporters had tipped either James Seminary or Sunyani SHS to carry the day following their rivalry in previous NSMQ contests.
But what was unknown to many was the arsenal in the possession of Nkoranza SHTS.
Round One was not so graceful for contestants of Nkoranza SHTS as they secured 19 points. At the top of the pack was St James Seminary with 20 points.
This continued in the next two subsequent rounds. Nkoranza SHTS, however, followed closely and bridged the gap between itself and St James Seminary SHS.
Both contestants and supporters of St James Seminary and Nkoranza SHTS were all tensed up at the final round.
At this point, things could go south for St James Seminary who was in the lead or Nkoranza SHTS could hit its contending schools with a big blow and be declared winners.
Also, schools that have seeded for the NSMQ 2021 will participate in the National Championship.
A seeded school is simply any Senior High School that qualifies from the one-eight stage into the quarterfinals of the competition.
This means that all winners of the one-eight stage automatically qualify as seeded schools for the next year.
The exciting benefit of being a seeded school is that the school will skip two major hot competitions in the next year’s NSMQ: the regional and preliminary stages.

Earlier we reported that over 1,800 students at Damongo Senior High School in the West Gonja Municipality of the Savannah Region are worried as the school is unable to provide them with enough food.
Some final year students who spoke to JoyNews stated that the shortage of food has worsened since May this year.
This has resulted in some students relocating from the boarding house and commuting from their homes to school for classes.
