16-year-old Adedipe Oluwatosin was recently crowned Young Scientist of the Year, after winning the Young Nigerian Scientist Presidential Award at a ceremony held at Eagle’s Square, Abuja.

Adedipe emerged best at a competition organised by the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology, out of a total of 774 candidates (drawn from all the local government areas in the country) who participated both at the preliminary and the final stages.

In recognition of this achievement, the Ekiti State Government very recently awarded a cash prize of N2.5 million to Adedipe as well as an annual scholarship grant of N1m per annum for a period of four years as funding for his undergraduate studies.

The SSS III student from Shepherd International School, Ado-Ekiti, was also the 2016 winner of the Science Teachers Association of Nigeria (STAN) National Science Competition
