The National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) is a national quiz competition between Senior High Schools (SHSs) across the length and breadth of the country.
Before a school qualifies for the national competition, it has to go through the district, zonal and regional competitions and pull a considerable amount of point to represent the school.
Aside from the trolls and bragging right that characterize the competition, the contest is to put the minds of these young students to test in a conscious effort to promote the study of Science, Mathematics and Technology.
Well, the history behind the much-touted competition began in 1994 with Prempeh College been 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 six followed by Prempeh with 4 and Persco with 3.
The latest edition, 2020 NSMQ was won by Presec Legon yesterday after they beat Adisadel College and Opoku Ware Senior High School.
