Chancellor's Challenge Shield 2009

21 February 2009

This is an annual event organised by NUS Political Association to create awareness in current affairs. It is a contest in which teams of students from various Junior Colleges and Universities sit for a mini-exam to test out their level of general knowledge and current affairs.

My team was SpideySense, comprising of Minru, Gary and myself. After the preliminary round, we discussed our answers and found out that when one answered wrongly, the other 2 answered that right. As a team, we neutralised each other... but we didn't get to the finals.

During the lunch break, we went for the free health check-up at MPSH 4.

The Guest-of-Honour was Mr Steven Chia, Channel NewsAsia news presenter. He was humorous in his speech and his charisma won over the participants.

The finals was held after lunch. It was a battle among Hwa Chong Institution, NUS and Victoria Junior College. HCI students were impressive, clinching the top award, followed by NUS and then VJC.

Even though I didn't win the top 10 individual award, I enjoyed myself very much. I got to make a new friend (Gary) and also had a brain-squeezing session during the finals.
