The Season 5 of Bookworm Reading Reality Show has ended on a very high note and in style at the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) Hall in Accra.

The finalists, with sheer brilliance, endeared themselves to parents and guardians who thronged the well-organised event on Sunday.

It was Kaylan Abeka Doku Abbew of Trinity School-Dansoman that emerged winner in the closely contested lower primary competition.

And for his exceptional brilliance, he received a Republic Investments gift voucher, laptop, books and cases of Planet drinks.

The upper primary category saw Shanice Naa Sueley Adjei of Pearly Kids School- Teshie emerging tops, shrugging off stiff competition from her mates.

She also received a Republic Investments gift voucher, laptop, books and a case of Planet drink.

The winners in a post-competition interview attributed their respective success stories to the special interest they have developed in reading.

Founder and CEO of Bookworm Reading Reality Show, Reverend Nelson Kofi Poku said, “It’s been good so far, thanks to parents and teachers of these wonderful pupils, of course, we can’t forget our sponsors for the support.

“We keep improving by the year, we are in the fifth year, this year has been awesome, we started the prelims a few months and we are planning to extend it to other parts of the country, we are already in Kumasi.”

According to him, winners and finalists are billed for an opportunity to tour Dubai and an exchange programme opportunity in Canada (condition apply) which would be organised by the Bookworm Avenue Consult and supported by the parents soon.

The Bookworm Reading Reality Show is an initiative targeted at inculcating reading habits among children in basic schools and also training them to become news anchors on GNTV Junior. According to the project’s CEO, Season 6 is set to roll out and all parents are encouraged to enrol their wards on the Bookworm competition.
