The REEL Foundation organizes the first edition of the Young Writers Challenge : Nigerian Education

REEL Foundation organizes first edition of the Young Writers Challenge!

Imagination and creativity are crucial for children’s learning and development. A child’s ability to transform these skills into a story is phenomenal and should be encouraged and developed.

In the words of Albert Einstein: “Imagination is more important than knowledge, knowledge is limited. Imagination surrounds the world “

With this in mind, we are pleased to announce the first edition of the REEL Young Writers Challenge. A story writing competition for children to stimulate imagination and creativity and reward hard work and excellence.
