This year’s edition welcomed 20 pupils from different schools around the Chipata/Mandevu area to participate in the fellowship program organised by the International OlympAfrica Foundation.
The student participants were drawn from age groups ranging from 12-14 years.
During the 4 day programmme each student was given an equal opportunity to compete in activities such as art drawing, general knowledge on Olympic Values, quizzes, Athletics, and debate on various issues.
The top 4 overall winners of the activities will walk away with $250 each to support their school finances or purchase of sports equipment.

For 8th grader, Rosemary Chanda the program was enriching, informative, and exciting as she was able to complete new challenges each day.
