Excellent Minds Initiative is inviting applications from undergraduate students in Nigerian tertiary institutions to participate in the 4th Edition of the Annual Excellent Minds Essay Competition. The essay competition is focused on promoting critical thinking, harnessing ideas and developing the talents, abilities, gifts and skills inherent in the Nigerian youths.
This we expect shall translate into a ripple effect of awareness and provide a platform for growth for future leaders of Nigeria. This year’s topic draws on the threats of rising inequality in Nigeria and the ongoing climate actions.
Climate change and rising inequality in our world are twin threats that are particularly worrisome. In a space where no one is safe from the devastating effects of a heating planet, it is the poor who have done the least to heat the planet, that will suffer first, and the most, from the brunt of these threats in the new decade – if no action is taken to address these issues.
Essay should not be more than 1000 words on how Nigeria can effectively address the double threats of climate change and inequality towards ensuring a sustainable future for its people.”
Eligibility: The essay is open to undergraduate students in tertiary institutions across Nigeria
