The objective of the NSMQ has been to promote the study of the sciences and mathematics, help students develop quick thinking and a probing and scientific mind about the things around them while fostering healthy academic rivalry among senior high schools.
Check out the champions of the NSMQ from 1994 to 2021
The National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) is aimed at encouraging the study of Science and Mathematics at the second-cycle institutions.
Participants or contestants over the years look forward to winning so they can beat their chests and recount how they beat so and so schools to win the trophy.
The history behind the much-touted competition began in 1994 with Prempeh College being the first school to walk home with the trophy. However, the likes of Presec Legon, Persco, and Mfantispim School have also come a long way.
On the list of top winners, Presec-Legon has won the trophy 6 times followed by Prempeh College with 5 and Persco with 3.
The latest edition, 2021 NSMQ was won by Prempeh College after beating PRESEC–Legon and Keta SHTS.
