Ngwa Norah, Winner of February edition of the Digital Literacy contest


Sisterspeak237 has on a release dated March 16, 2022, named Ngwa Norah a student of the Department of Communication and Development Studies in the University of Bamenda winner of the February edition of its Digital Literacy Contest.

From the 8 entries presented by contestants, Nora's entry which was based on Fake news came first after scoring 95/100.

According to Sisterspeak237, the 8 video entries just like the January session, had two judges who scored each entry on 50 and online engagements made the other 50 points.

Ndamo Damaris, one of the judges of the contest after the second edition notes that the entries were impressive.

"I am very impressed with the entries this month. Each contestant brought in their unique flavor and proved their readiness to carry the message beyond. Last month's edition had four entries and the fact that it doubled to 8 this edition depicts how widely the campaign is spreading, reaching out to more people across the globe. Hence, more awareness on the subject", she stated.

Allen Laika Tatah, Akalambi Claire, Mokube Kenail, Eyong Taku, Metsatedem B. Russel, Alain Mbah, and Brandon Tabot followed respectively with their entries demonstrating an understanding of how to combat fake news, misinformation, and Hate Speech.

Wanchia Cynthia, the Project Lead of Sisterspeak237 says this second edition of the contest was tough in comparison to the first.

"I must say this second round of the Digital Literacy Contest was tougher than the first. Choosing a winner became a difficult task for our team. The entries were intriguing and contestants showed mastery of the subject matter. It was more interesting to get an entry from a group of the hearing impaired and we pray the messages sink so together we can stop hate Speech, combat fake news and misinformation. I am excited to see what the March edition has in store for us", she said

The Digital Literacy Contest is part of the Digital Literacy Project currently under implementation with funds from the US Embassy in Cameroon.

The March edition of this contest will be launched on March 20, 2022.
