By Staff Reporter

GA-MATIPANE-A Grade 11 learners from Motloboni Combined School at Ga Matipane, Bolobedu will represent Limpopo in the financial literacy speech competition held by the Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA).

Kgaugelo Morongwe Mafa together with her mentor, subject advisers and provincial coordinators assembled at the Southern Sun OR Tambo today, October 13 to compete against other provinces.

The 16-year-old soft-spoken learner was selected after competing against other Districts in the province and surprised everyone, perhaps even herself when she walked away with the top prize.

She will now represent the Limpopo in the national leg of the competition.

The FSCA has been hosting this competition since 2016, where Grade 11 learners from non-fee-paying schools are encouraged to be more financially literate by researching and delivering a five-minute speech on selected financial literacy topics. Funded by the Financial Services Consumer Education Foundation (FSCEF), the competition offers individual prizes and up to R500 000 in tertiary bursaries.

It’s now down to the nine provincial winners (each having already secured R37 000 in investment prizes) who, on Friday, October 13, will vie for the final three spots where a further investment prizes await the winner and runners-up.

The top three finalists will each win a full bursary, totalling about R500 000, to study at any public South African university of their choice.
