Competition aims to unleash Nigeria kids' potential

10 February 2015, 09:00Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - A multinational consumer goods company has launched a competition that is envisaged to develop local kids’ ambition through creative art and writing.

Unleash Your Potential is the brainchild of Unilever, which is sponsoring the competition through its OMO brand.

“We decided to embark on this initiative because we feel it is highly important we develop our children, thereby helping them realize their dreams,” Brand Manager of OMO, Sarah Adoki, said in Ikeja.

“In supporting their growth, we on our part decided to help children across the country unleash that hidden potential inherent in them through a Creative Art and Essay Competition which will see them express that which even their parents never knew they had in them.”

Through the competition, school children would be required to creatively produce an art work, showing their future career.

OMO’s brand ambassadors would collect all artwork from schools where top three learners would be rewarded.

Eventual winners from each school would compete with other schools culminating in the emergence of State winners.

These will then be invited with a parent/guardian to Lagos where they will compete nationally at the grand finale where one student will be named the overall champion.

Prizes to be won include laptops and bursaries.

Those who emerge winners in the states would also receive N50 000 each.
