Following the success of the first edition,  the second Value Investment Challenge – Schools Edition, will be held at Alliance High School on the 11th of February, 2016 from 8am to 5pm.

This event will showcase the financial literacy and investment education program that the Valuraha Club has been conducting in high schools through digital learning and structured competitions.

This year they are welcoming new entrants to the competition, who hope to give our pioneer schools a run for their money.

Two scholarships to pursue degrees in Strathmore University will be awarded, along with cash prizes of up to Sh. 200,000. The event should be well attended with the likes of Guest of honor  Cabinet Secretary ICT, Hon. Joe Mucheru.
