افتراضي 80,000 Pupils To Contest For Prizes In Indomie Art Contest

An estimated 80,000 children drawn from over 1,000 schools across the country are expected to jostle For Prizes including N1.5 million worth of scholarships and more fabulous Prizes as the first stage of the second season of the Indomie Inter-school Art Competition commenced during the week.

Tagged ‘My Mum like no other, the Art competition had its maiden edition in 2011 and entails asking interested Schoolchildren, who are twelve years old or younger, to make drawings of their mothers, which are then submitted through their schools For consideration and reward.

According to the Public Relations Manager of Dufil Prima Foods, Plc, Mr. Tope Ashiwaju, the competition was instituted as a fun but different way of engaging the skill and ingenuity of children.

He said, “We were looking to come up with an idea of what would encourage the children to explore their artistic sides and enable them express their love For their mummies while fostering the spirit of healthy competition. But we also wanted a break from the norm – so, instead of settling For a Quiz Show or Contest, Indomie inaugurated the ‘My Mum like no other’ Art competition where the children could have fun expressing them and be rewarded For it.”

On a recent tour of some of the schools registered in Lagos and its environs, Mr. Ashiwaju was mightily impressed by the talent on display and marvelled at the remarkable skill already being wielded by the children at such tender ages. He urged the schools’ management to encourage more of their Pupils to get involved with the competition.

“In addition to the 950 schools registered in Lagos and its environs, there were 160 schools in Abuja in competition For the top Prizes of various scholarships. In all, we are expecting about 80,000 children to participate in this year’s competition.” He revealed.

On their part, the schools commended Indomie For such an initiative as it has energized their usual academic routines and given the children an exercise they eagerly devoted time and energy to. At Precious Feet Nursery and Primary School in Surulere, Lagos, the Proprietress, Mrs. Paulina Akporu observed the zeal with which the children have approached the competition.

She said: “While our Pupils have always enjoyed their school work, we have noticed that their eyes light up whenever they are asked to bring out their paper and pencils. We are grateful to Indomie For an idea like this which has helped the children discover talent within them that may have otherwise remained hidden.”

One such child whose talent has caught the eye is 9 year-old Chukwuemeka Dubem who, like many of his mates, drew a sketch of his Mum in traditional attire which stood him out and that may yet pave a passage For him into the next phase of the competition.

“After the best entries from each school have been collated, we intend to pick the top 100 children who would be asked to prove their mettle one more time on the day of the Finals before our Panel of Judges select deserving top prize winners.”, Mr. Ashiwaju further explained.

Umar Farouk Mohammed is another budding talent that may get a chance to prove ‘his mettle’ on judgement day. The 9 year-old is a Primary 4 pupil at Lively Kiddies’ Nursery and Primary School, Lagos where his sketch of Mummy is drawing accolades from his mates and teachers.
