“The joyful thing is that we have followed a tradition worth emulating from the prize’s inception. It is three years and we are waxing stronger. By the grace of God, this edition will focus on both public and private tertiary schools, and for both members and non-members. We have further distinguished it from other editions by excluding the national executive members of the club,” she said.
She said the competition is themed, “Government intervention: Its impact on youth innovation and creativity” while winners get cash prizes. It opened on November 1 and closes on December 31st, 2022.
The club was established in 2018 by Udukhotse Foundation to mentor young adults and students in secondary and tertiary institutions across Nigeria and to explore their creativity.
