Brain Builders International, a Non-governmental organization in the State of Osun has stated its readiness to stage the fourth edition of its annual Teens Speak Out programme.
This was contained in a press statement released by the Coordinator of the organization, Mr. Olasupo Abideen Opeyemi.
According to him, the programme is scheduled to hold on Thursday, 26th of October, 2017 at Osogbo Government High School Hall, Osogbo by 10am prompt.
The theme of this year’s contest is “Let the Teens Contribute to National Development” and it will feature thirty different schools across the state of Osun.
“This year’s edition would see more than 30 schools in Osun State come together to compete healthily in the oratory and essay categories, with rewards worth five hundred thousand naira for the winners of the contests and their schools. The contests constantly ensure that students are up to date, with regards to national and international happenings, as students brilliantly utilise handy facts in supporting their claims, in written and oral contests.
Mr. Olasupo added that “Teens Speak Out has also helped in exposing students and teachers to areas where they need to improve on, as printable improvements have always been noticed. It’s also important to note that the awards we give out have been immensely helpful in fostering the development and growth of students by seeing to their academic excellence”.
