It is universally said that the joy of the Olympics is not just in winning medals ,but in participating
And with that philosophy in mind , we can authoritatively reveal that the UBA Foundation- corporate social responsibility arm of the United Bank for Africa, UBA Plc, last night announced the twelve lucky finalists for the 2020 edition of its annual National Essay Competition.
The 12 finalists will sit for the next round of the competition, where three winners will emerge after undergoing supervised essay writing on this year's topic
The names of the finalists in no particular order are:
*Enobong Flourish David
*Marilyn Anya Ibem
*Stephen Godgrant Uzezi and
*Emenugha Hannah Amarachi
*This year’s edition, which is the 10th since inception, has been modified to ensure ease of access and increased participation of senior secondary school students from the comfort of their homes through the introduction of a digital submission portal.
Taking into consideration the effects the COVID-19 pandemic
has had on lives and incomes across board, the UBA Foundation has also increased the prize money for the 2020 edition of the NEC by 33 per cent as the first prize winner will get an educational grant of N2.5m, up from N2m in 2019.
The second and third prize winners will now receive N2m and N1.5m educational grants respectively, from N1.5m and N1m which were awarded in the previous year’s competition.
The Chief Executive Officer, UBA Foundation, Bola Atta told World industry leaders international magazine not too long ago that:
“With the newly introduced digital submission portal, more students in secondary schools across the country will have the opportunity to scan and send in their entries and compete to win educational grants for study at any university of their choice on the African Continent.”
“As a Foundation, which is the CSR arm of the United Bank for Africa – a fully digitalised bank, we are driven by the mantra to always innovate and adapt to our constantly changing environment. This year, we thought hard about how to ease the pains that everyone is feeling
“Students were not been able to go to school for a long while and there has been a lot of anxiety in families trying to ensure that educational gaps do not emerge. It is imperative for us at the UBA Foundation that our impact programmes do not wane.”
