The head of team explained that the GTCA wasn’t reserved for teens only but all other public personalities whose activities affect and influence the lives of teenagers positively.
“This awards event should not be seen as a competition between nominees but as a way of encouraging teens to strive for excellence in everything they do.
We take this opportunity to call on all Parents to come watch and support teens on the event night.”
Advance tickets for the teens biggest night are currently selling at the photo store in Accra Mall for GHC 30.
