Prempeh College, one of the participating schools, has filed a request for an injunction against the popular National Science and Math Quiz (NSMQ) to prevent the grand finale from happening.
A dispute regarding a response provided by a Prempeh College representative during the semifinal round led to the filing of a lawsuit. The quiz master disagreed, yet the school insisted that the response was correct.
Disgruntled, Prempeh College sent a petition to Primetime Limited, the NSMQ organizers. The corporation, however, denied the appeal, stating that they were pleased with the justifications offered by the quiz mistress and the NSMQ consultant for their choice to deny Prempeh College points on the disputed question.
Following the dismissal of its petition, Prempeh College stated in a statement that they will investigate all avenues for obtaining justice, as stated by PB Damoah, the school’s NSMQ coordinator.
Now that the NSMQ grand finale is set for October 30, 2023, the disgruntled school has filed a lawsuit to try to prevent it from happening.
