Standard Bank Namibia said this week it has awarded cash prizes worth N$260,000 to 104 top performing Grade 10 and 12 learners of 2013.

As a Corporate Social Investment initiative, Standard Bank Namibia’s Academic Excellence programme is incentive driven and rewards the top three best performing Grade 10 and 12 learners in each region with a cash prize.
The top performer in each region for both Grade 10 and 12 received N$4000, while the first runner up received N$3000 and the second runner up N$2000.

The school of the top performer in each region was awarded a cash prize of N$1000.

Standard Bank said its ‘Investing in Academic Excellence’ programme aims to enhance the academic performance of learners at schools in Namibia across all 13 regions.
