Girls are invited to submit essays of 2,000 words or less answering the following question:

In your own words, what does women’s and girl’s empowerment mean to you? What are

some of the ways in which the Government of Nigeria, civil society, the private sector and families and communities can empower women and girls in Nigeria to become well-

rounded, fulfilled and productive citizens?

 

Eligibility

The competition is open to Nigerian girls between the ages of 13 and 19. To be eligible, all essays must be written in English and be a maximum of 2,000 words. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of independent judges and evaluated against three criteria: the quality of arguments, grammar and vocabulary, and overall flow.

  • First prize: N30,000

  • Second prize: N20,000

  • Third prize: N10,000
