Excellent Minds Initiative (EMI) Nationwide Essay Competition 2020
Jan 26, 2020, 4:19 PM
Excellent Minds Initiative (EMI) - Applications are invited from undergraduate students in the Nigerian tertiary institutions to participate in the 4th Edition of the Annual Excellent Minds Essay Competition. Title: 2020 Excellent Minds Essay Competition Location: Nationwide Preamble
- This year’s topic draws on the threats of rising inequality in Nigeria and the ongoing climate actions.
- The essay competition is focused on promoting critical thinking, harnessing ideas and developing the talents, abilities, gifts and skills inherent in the Nigerian youths. This we expect shall translate into a ripple effect of awareness and provide a platform for growth for future leaders of Nigeria.
- In the same vein, despite the significant boom in innovation and local markets in recent times, there are still unfair discrepancies and widening gaps between the haves and have-nots in Nigeria.
- These inequalities undermine the nation’s democratic system and the future of our young people. Sadly, the rising inequality has a powerful accomplice in climate change. “As a concerned Nigerian, pitch your biggest idea (not more than 1000 words) on how Nigeria can effectively address the double threats of climate change and inequality towards ensuring a sustainable future for its people.”
- Climate change and rising inequality in our world are twin threats that are particularly worrisome. In a space where no one is safe from the devastating effects of a heating planet, it is the poor who have done the least to heat the planet, that will suffer first, and the most, from the brunt of these threats in the new decade - if no action is taken to address these issues.
- The essay is open to undergraduate students in tertiary institutions across Nigeria.
- Second Prize: A Tablet + Certificate of Accomplishment
- Third Prize: A Printer + Certificate of Accomplishment
- First Prize: A Laptop + Certificate of Accomplishment
- In addition to these prizes, we are happy to recognise the top 3 winners of our Essay Competition by publishing their essays on our website for unrestricted access by the online community.
- Only shortlisted applicants shall be contacted for the next stage.
- Our adjudicators take plagiarism very seriously. If you are caught plagiarising, you will be disqualified from the competition.
