Aburi Girls Senior High School (SHS) has emerged as winners of the eighth edition of the Young Debaters competition.
The school was represented by Prisca Amponsah, who swept aside all her competitors to claim the bragging rights.
For winning the contest, she gets an all-expenses-paid trip to the United Kingdom to represent Ghana at the coveted International Public Speaking Competition (IPSC) which is scheduled for May.
Achimota Senior High School’s Jasmine Takyi-Acheampong and Presbyterian Boys Senior High School’s Daniel Mawunge Kweku Amanor finished as first and second-runners up respectively.
This year’s edition of The Young Debaters is actually the eight since the inception of the competition.
The final was held last Saturday at the Impact Hub in Labone, Accra, with 20 participants from various secondary schools slugging it out.
The likes of Presbyterian Boys SHS, Aburi Girls SHS, Accra Academy SHS and Achimota SHS all partook in the competition.
The first round began with contestants delivering speeches on the topic: “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.”
Ten of the students were then selected to make it to the final after impressing the judges with their oratory skills.
However, Prisca Amponsah stood tall during the final as her flawless delivery swayed all the judges into picking her as the winner.
