Rescue Youth Alliance ends a one-day Spelling Bee Competition in Monrovia
Our program, ‘’the Rescue Youth Alliance School Ambassadors Academic Challenge’’, was a one-day spelling bee competition among our grade students across Monrovia, organized by REYA's Programs Department.
The Spelling Bee Competition was intended to help contribute to Liberia’s educational system improve to an advanced level.
It was meant to test the academic strength of our School Ambassadors who are currently being sponsored by us for the academic year 2021.
We managed, through help of our partners, to have ten (10) students on our scholarship program for the academic year 2021.
So, as the school year of 2021 is going to end, we have decided to test the academic ability of our students through this spelling bee competition.
Student Theresa KoiKoi, an 8th grade student at the Nathaniel Varney Massaquoi Elementary and Junior High School in West Point Community, District 7, Montserrado County, was emerged as the first winner with the highest points of 175.
She was awarded a certificate as first winner and a price of motivation of 3, 000 Liberian Dollars.
Student Abel Famah, a 9th grade student at the Special Project Elementary, Junior and Senior High School located in Steven Tolbert Estate, District 12, Montserrado County was second winner with 170 points.
He was also awarded a certificate with a price of 2, 000 Liberian dollars.
Other students who participated in the competition were:
student Abubaka Jalloh, a 9th grade student of the Nathaniel Varney Massaquoi Elementary & Junior High school, student Ebenezer Komoteh , 5th grade student at the C. Williams Bruskine Elementary School and students Siaka Kamara, Hawatta Fahnbulleh, 9th grade students from the Special Project Elementary, Junior & Senior High School in Steven Tolbert Estate as participants of the spelling bee competition.
‘’The competition was very viable and tough to have gotten a winner, however, student Theresa Koikoi, a female of the N.V. Missisquoi school became victorious, and this occasion brought together scope of academicians that stood on to see the end of the competition.
We're grateful to our leaders, members, sponsors, judges and participants for making this program a successful one into history’.
Serving as a Guest Speaker during program, Mr. Trojan Kiazolu, Manager of FARABRIC Radio 101.1 FM, encouraged Liberian youth to always prepare for future challenges with innovative ideas and remain courageous in overcoming their shortcomings.
The Liberian Journalist admonished young people to remain steadfast and vision-driven while working very hard towards their visions and goals.
‘’If you want to succeed in life, don’t envy, just remain persistent with whatever you do with a positive mind set of winning over your challenges’’, he said.
Mr. Trojan also appealed to other non-governmental organizations to partner with Rescue Youth Alliance for support of making more tangible impacts in Liberia as the institution (REYA) has started.
