150 Essay Competition Winners Get Scholarships

Kellogg’s Nigeria has given educational scholarships to 150 youngsters who emerged as winners of the fourth edition of Kellogg’s Superstars Essay Competition.

A statement by the organisation explained that Kellogg’s gave a cash reward of N150,000.00 to each winner, saying the Kellogg’s Superstars Essay Competition was instituted in 2019 for the benefit of young children between five and 12 years to sharpen their writing skills and to provoke creative thinking in them.

It read, “In a continued move to contribute its share towards achieving the long-term goal of a reduced number of out-of-school children in Nigeria, Kellogg’s hosted the winners, guardians, and proprietors of their schools to a grand reception in Ikeja, Lagos, where they were officially presented with certificates and cash rewards of N150,000 each and other prizes. Equally present to witness the event were representatives from the Ministry of Education and Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board. Kellogg’s believes every child innately possesses all it requires to thrive when the surrounding condition is right and favourable.”

It revealed that some months ago, the brand opened its portal for entries across the country for students to write a short and concise essay of not more than 100 words on the topic, ‘My start to a great day.’

The statement, which added that 320,000 entries were received, said, “Following a sifting process conducted through a distinguished panel of judges, 150 children emerged as winners of the 4th edition of the Kellogg’s Superstars Essay competition. Also, another set of 1,000 children was rewarded with handy educational materials as consolation prizes.”
