Launched since March 30 of this year by the NGO FORCE and TECHNIDEV, the final of the Miss Intellect Chad contest took place this Sunday, July 11, 2021 at the Radisson Blue hotel in N’djamena, the capital. The objective of this sub-regional competition is to highlight the intellectual skills of high school students in order to promote excellence in schools in Chad. With the impact of religion, many girls marry early, resulting in early dropping out of school. This intellectual competition aims to keep girls in school and their performance in scientific and literary disciplines.
The winners of the Miss Intellect Chad competition are known at the end of the final which took place on Sunday 11 July 2021 at the Radisson Blue Hotel. The contest was open to girls in the field of literature and mathematics but also in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for high school students aged 18 to 25. Most of the provinces of Chad were represented by 12 candidates. The latter presented their know-how through a project presented to a Jury composed of 4 members.
After a complex sorting due to the quality of the candidates’ production, Miss Seidé Siboro who represented the province of Ouaddai, was awarded in the mathematical category. In the literary field, it was Remadji Aleyo Gloria of the Western Logone Province who won the prize. In the “Innovation” category, it was Ndil Ndoky from Ouaddaï who distinguished himself. Finally, as far as ICTs are concerned, it was Miss Yanroi Beadoummadje of the capital N’Djaména who finished first.
