Green Diamond 2021 Essay Competition For Young Nigerians

Are you a Nigerian? Are you passionate & enthusiastic about a greater and better Nigeria? Do you have an ideal story for Nigeria? Do you have exceptional writing skills?

An Essay Competition is a very valuable project, as it is very flexible, adaptable and open to expansion, while still being very easy to organise, both in terms of human resources and financial matters. As an Essay Competition is a project which can be appealing to individuals across various levels of education and writing skills, our target audience will be very wide, giving you the chance to achieve good engagement with the Nigerian youths.

There are a number of intellectual and savvy young Nigerians with creative writing skills.

Our future projection is that this becomes an annual contest held to recognize and award talent and creativity.

2021 Essay Topic:  60 years of our togetherness. Nigeria Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow.
