Girls dominate Round Two of Triple-S Challenge

Nine out of ten participants of the on-going Schools Sanitation Solutions (Triple-S) Challenge who have qualified for Round Two are girls.

Out of the 194 entries received from interested pupils, ten were disqualified, while ten were selected from the remaining 184 valid entries based on their outstanding performances for the Masters Encounter in Round Two.

Greater Accra dominates the top ten list with seven candidates while the Bono, Northern, and Savannah Regions got a candidate each qualifying.

Silicon Valley International School located at Ofankor in Accra also dominates with three candidates including the only boy in the top ten.

The Triple-S Challenge, which was launched by World Vision Ghana and Kings Hall Media in September 2019, eventually took off in January 2020 with the Round One ending in May 2020.

The top ten candidates will compete for a slot among the top four in the final round (Battle of Champions). This time each selected candidate will verbally defend their Round One letters to the President to a three-member panel of experts and an estimated audience size of one hundred invited dignitaries and guests.

The Triple-S Challenge is a sanitation campaign that aims at sensitizing children on sanitation issues and challenging them to propose practicable and sustainable solutions to sanitation and waste management challenges facing the country.

The contestants were given the following task in Round one: “Write an open letter to the President of Ghana, drawing his attention to the poor sanitation situation in or around your school. Suggest to him how the problem can be solved in a sustainable manner.”
