Samuel Antwi

Winston-Salem, North Carolina and Kumasi, Ghana are sister cities participating in the Sister Cities International program.  Grow Foundation For Ghana has partnered with Sister Cities Winston-Salem to provide art for an upcoming student art showcase.   GFFG advisory committee member Benjamin Offei – Nyako (BON) solicited student art from three Kumasi schools.   (BON is an artist and lectured at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) for many years.  See more about him in Board Members & Friends.) Students submitted artwork based on the theme “Connecting Communities for Peace and Prosperity.”

Samuel Antwi, a KNUST student, received the 2016 Sister Cities International student art competition grand prize BON wrote:

“Excited to write this. That, the event went out well and the whole student body was invited. In attendance was Dr. Kwame Boafoa GFFG board member. Samuel Antwi received his prize with a standing ovation. It crowned several achievements by the school. The Chairman of the board of directors intends on organizing a radio interview for the students. It was a proud moment for the Staff of the Art Department also. The $1,000.00 can do a lot for Samuel. His guardian was around to give him the family support.”
