Essay competition is a platform to develop the intellectual and writing abilities of students in Nigeria. It is also organized in an effort to harness the energy, creativity and initiative of youths in promoting a culture of peace and sustainable development.
It also aims to inspire society to learn from the young minds and to think about how each of us can make a difference in the world.
In view of the above, I have decided to compile the list of Essay Competitions in Nigeria for the 2020/2021 session. Some of the competition are for senior secondary students while some are for undergraduates in various tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
There are great prizes attached to winning the essay writing competition. For instance, winners get educational grants to study in any African University of their choice and other lots of prizes.
