The University of Sierra Leone will today meet with Copperbelt University of Zambia in the Round Two Knock-out Contest of the Battle of Brains in the ongoing Zain Africa Challenge.

Todays contest will be termed West Vs. South, by virtue of geographical locations of the two universities and this competition will be aired live on the Sierra Leone Broadcasting Corporation (SLBC) today 21st April 2010 at 6.00 p.m. which will be repeated on Saturday 24th April 2010 at 8.00 p.m.

The University Sierra Leone is represented by Songor Koedoyoma, Jimmy Smith, Abubakar Sawanneh of the constituent colleges of COMAHS, IPAM & FBC. These students are our only Sierra Leone Ambassadors left in the competition with the demise of Njala University in previous knock-out stages.

A new dimension of the show has been added where viewers can now vote for their favourite player. Tonight is an opportunity to watch and vote for your favourite Sierra Leonean player of the game. The player with the highest votes stands to win $1000 in addition to other prize(s) to be won by the team.

The second interactive point of the game is that as home viewers will stand the chance of winning a Nokia N97 mini phone. This is will be won by Zain Subscribers that will answer questions posed by sending the answers as text to short-code 600. Over 15 of such phones have been won by Sierra Leoneans subscribers of Zain.

The Zain Africa Challenge is an African International University quiz competition, which for the past two years has been held in Kampala, Uganda. Zain Group spends over a million dollars each year to produce the programme.

Viewers are therefore encouraged to watch the University of Sierra Leone live tonight at 6.00 p.m. on SLBC and support our Ambassadors in this crunch Battle of Brains as the competition continues.
