THE first national history quiz will narrow down from 27 schools when it reaches the final stage of the competition next month.

Sultan Sharif Ali Secondary School, Menglait Secondary School, Paduka Seri Begawan Sultan Science College and Sayyidina Hussain Secondary School will battle it out for two spots in the final before they can lift the Pehin Jawatan Dalam History Quiz Cup.

Organised by the Brunei History Centre, the four teams that will be competing in the semi-final stage had gone through two previous rounds of competition.

According to a press release from the Brunei History Centre, a total of 27 schools competed in the qualifying stage in June early this year.

That number was reduced to 14 schools for the quarter-final stage held on September 30 and October 1.

The Brunei History Centre said the competition aims to encourage and develop students’ talent and interest in history.

It also hoped to promote awareness on the importance of history and its link to development among the young generation.

The theme of this year’s competition is “Sejarah Saksi Semalam Sarana Masa Depan”.

A previous report said the winner will receive a cash prize amounting to $1,500 and trophies.
