For months now, the creativity of the Nigerian Child has been on showcase in the Omo ‘Imagine and Achieve’ Competition for primary schools and it has been a thrill-ride for the senses. Who knew our children had so much potential waiting to be unleashed!

Well, thanks to Omo’s initiative, young persons with talents for Arts and Writing are being discovered across the country with the best entries in the states going “Art to Art” in the ongoing state finals and were rewarded with prizes ranging from N70,000 to N50,000 bursaries. Other prizes include bicycles, school bags, writing materials, etc.

Meanwhile, the top three entries in the Essay contests smiled home with Laptops, N20,000 and N15,000 respectively – and all these happened in over 20 states across the country.

The Lagos state finals was held on Wednesday May 13, 2015 and it was an occasion filled with colour and creativity. The top three Art entries received N100,000, N70,000 and N50,000 respectively.

On Friday May 15,  the state winners were gathered at Funtastica Land in Ilupeju, Lagos for the Grand Finale where the best of the best Artwork winners were crowned with N1,000,000, N500,000 and N200,000 in bursaries.

    Wow! I wish Omo did this back when my glue, crayons and papers needed a break from the sitting room walls… this is such a thoughtful, engaging competition and I hope the children remain creative!

    This is so cool and this is how to unleash creativity. Not filling their head with junk that one invisible man spoke and everything was created , there are 72 virgins in heaven or people will get sick if you desecrated their idols temple. Get rid of religion it is a plague to Nigeria’s development.
