At the end of the three round contest ASHAISEC emerged the champion with 52 points, followed by MEDAS-49, PRESEC-48, CHEMSEC-45 and TEMASCO-44.
For their prize, each of the two ASHAISEC contestants received GH¢200 for themselves, and a shield, laptop and water dispenser went to the school.
The contestants for the first runner-up school received GH¢150 each, while a different shield, laptop and water dispenser went to MEDAS.
