Sunyani SHS best agriculture student offered job

Eric Okyere, a Sunyani Senior High School student, won the title of best agriculture student at the 10th Ghana Grows High School Next Level, a nationwide competition.

At the 10th nationwide Ghana Grows High School Next Level held over the weekend, he was given GH¢500 apiece by two entrepreneurs, along with a citation, an undisclosed cash award, a hamper, a book on job creation, and other mementos from the Ghana Grows team. Kovi Organics Limited sent a job offer to him as well.

The Mastercard Foundation and the Springboard Road Show Foundation have partnered to create the Ghana Grows program, which aims to close the knowledge gap between youth and the agricultural and ATVET fields.

The program aims to enable students to reimagine their future and pursue jobs that are in line with their passion and talent. To date, it has been implemented in ten schools. Young entrepreneurs in the selected industries have been highlighted, along with career advice coaches and counselors who share prospects with the youth.

In addition, the program incorporates edutainment and practical demonstrations. Students participate in discussions, fashion presentations, dance performances, drama, and poetry.

The awards section, in which certain pupils receive recognition for their academic achievement, self-control, good behavior, and inventiveness, is the main attraction.
Comfort Ocran, Executive Director of the Springboard Road Show Foundation, stated that more than 15,000 students who took part in the program demonstrated a willingness to explore new avenues and change their opinions about ATVET and agriculture.

Kofi Vinyo, the CEO of Kovi Organics Limited, issued a challenge to the students, asking them to dream big and not let any obstacles stand in their way.

He was very pleased with Okyere’s academic achievements and success in agriculture, and he gave him a GH¢ 500 cash award and the chance to work in his company directly under his mentoring as soon as he graduated from high school.

During that time, he also promised to accommodate him. Nana Owusu-Achaw, the CEO of Nana Rice, also gave Okyere an extra GH¢ 500 and urged him to put in a lot of effort to emerge as Ghana’s next great agricultural entrepreneur.
