The Rebrand Nigeria Challenge is an essay competition for secondary school students in Nigeria on selected topics that focus on our national values and the need for our youths to become more patriotic citizens of Nigeria.
We are targeting this category of Nigerians because, we believe that “Catching them Young” will be a good strategy of re-orientating their mindsets about our country and our leaders.
As a leadership development organization that is committed to changing the world by raising young leaders, entrepreneurs from the African continent, we are concerned about the negative impression foreigners have about our people. The truth is that Nigerians are hardworking and productive wherever they are and we want that to be our global story.
To achieve the overall objectives of the Rebrand Nigeria campaign, which is to improve the image of Nigeria, we put together a number of action plans and activities.
One of them is our leadership training program for students and youths across the country with our messages on national values and patriotism.
Therefore, the Rebrand Nigeria Challenge, which is starting this year, is an extension of the leadership programs designed for students in all the secondary schools across the country.
For this first edition, we are limiting participation to only students in JSS 1- JSS 3 in both private and public schools in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
All eligible participants are to send in their essays of not more than 500 words on the topic “My Responsibility to Nigeria” in either MS Word or PDF formats to the email, email@example.com
Submission of essays will run from April 1, 2020 to May 15, 2020 while the grand finale shall hold on May 27, 2020, which is internationally celebrated as Children’s Day.
Ten finalists with the best essays shall be shortlisted for the final round of the competition which will be an oral presentation before a Panel of Judges. The top three winners shall receive cash awards, ranging from one hundred thousand naira (N100,000), fifty thousand naira (N50,000) and thirty thousand naira (N30,000) while the fourth to tenth positions shall receive consolation prizes.
