Organizer of the essay competition and presenter of the Young and Cerebral Adewumi Oshodi Tapa talked about the reasoning behind the essay competition. She said, "I always wanted to have a means of rewarding and acknowledge the younger generations that are making an impact in our society. I have had a lot of intellectuals and entrepreneurs on my show but I also realize that there is a greater percentage of youths and teens out there that have a lot to offer. That is why I decided to have this competition every year and reward the participants and winners with prizes such as laptops, smart phones, tablets and so much more."
Speaking on the reason behind sponsoring the essay competition, Managing Director Carmudi Nigeria, Christian Keller said, "We realize the importance of rewarding hard work and creative minds and are always on the lookout for opportunities like this. We followed the trend this competition created last year and the positive impact it had on the individuals who participated and thus decided to be part of that positive energy this year."
This year, the essay is open to the
youths and teenagers on the following topics; 'My favorite Nigerian Hero' and 'How to solve the Nigerian unemployment challenge' which is in fact open to discussion amongst the general public.
Adewumi said that that the competition will run throughout November and the winners will be announced by categories on November 30th.
