The Dickens Sanomi Annual Essay Competition
Advertised in the Nigerian national press, past competitions have attracted as many over 1000 entries in 2015 from throughout the country, divided between two categories of junior and senior secondary school students. Judging is carried out by professional authors and representatives of the publishing industry who kindly donate their time.
First prize for the winner of each category is a grant towards their school fees. Additionally, the schools attended by the winners receive a project grant to spend on facilities such as computer equipment, or whatever they choose.
Prizes are allotted during an award ceremony in Abuja that is attended by leading figures from the worlds of publishing and education, plus of course the Nigerian national press.
