The Brain Battle Quiz is not designed for only Catholics

The Brain Battle Quiz, a competition aimed at bringing out the confidence in young ones organized a press launch for the 2021 edition of the quiz on 10th March, 2021 at the Holy Spirit Cathedral, Adabraka.


The program which is being organized under the auspices of the national Catholic Secretariat saw the Episcopal Chairman for education, Most Rev John Bonaventure Kwofie, CSSp, the Greater Accra Regional Manager for Catholic Schools and other dignitaries in attendance.

The CEO of cocktail media Mr. Samuel Owusu-Boateng in a question and answer session with the press explained that the Brain Battle quiz is not only designed for Catholic schools but rather all non-Catholics studying in these Catholic schools are privileged to enjoy the benefits. Most of the competitors he said are not even Catholics and that alone should be a motivation to the other kids.

Explaining further, Most Rev John Bonaventure Kwofie said 80% of students in these Catholic schools are not Catholics which portrays the flexibility of the Catholic Church in terms of education.

In the next editions, Mr. Samuel Owusu- Boateng said it is likely that some selected non Catholic Schools will be allowed to participate in the quiz where laid down rules will be outlined and adhered to accordingly.

The essential difference between last year’s edition and this year’s is the number of schools participating increasing from 21 to 34 due to the addition of the new regions. Again, this year the ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of environment will collaborate to work with the 16 projects submitted by the competing schools from each region to produce great results.

The Greater Accra Regional manager for Catholic Schools Mrs. Josephine Asoo said due to the outbreak of the corona virus pandemic there was no criterion for selecting the competing schools. In that regard, each region came up with different strategies aiding them to decide on which schools are fit to participate.

There are two mandatory categories in this year’s contest as there was last year and these mandatory categories are; the national junior scientist project category and the practical based quiz contest. The Regional Championship is tentatively scheduled to take place between the 6th of April, 2021 and 14th May, 2021. Each regional quiz contest will be held without the presence of any team supporters.
