launches essay competition
The Ghana National Council
launched an essay competition leading to Chicago’s celebration of
Ghana’s 58th anniversary dinner dance.
The topic of the essay was “What Ghana @58 means to me” and
it was open to Ghanaians under the age of 30 years.
There were three prizes to be won.
Belinda Grant won the essay
competition and took home $300.00. The second price was won by
Rachael Boakye. She received $200.00. Lorene Boafo took home $100.00
for placing 3rd. Honorable mention was the essay submitted by
Catherine Ntiamoah. Her essay was adjudged the best but her absence
at the function was against the rules of the competition.
