uLESSON Education, a leading Edtech firm, is set to boost learning with a national academic tournament (UNAT) and N5 million for winners that would emerge. Tagged ‘Rise to the Challenge,’ the organisation said the competition is a platform for students to showcase their academic capabilities.
According to organisers, the winner will be rewarded N3 million cash, while the first and second runners up will get N1million and N500, 000 respectively.
“This tournament’s edition will feature a wide range of topics in subjects, like Mathematics, English, Chemistry, Physics, and Biology. Science students from secondary schools across the country will be eligible to participate and compete for the grand prize.
“Schools and students are invited to register for this tournament to demonstrate their knowledge, challenge themselves academically and gain recognition for their achievements. uLesson Education is committed to providing students with access to high-quality educational resources and experiences, and uNAT is just one of the many ways they are doing so,” the organisers stated.
Speaking on the initiative, uLesson’s Senior Vice President for academic and curriculum development, Iheanyichukwu Akwitti, said: “We are excited to launch the pilot edition of uLesson national academic tournament and we look forward to seeing the incredible knowledge and skills of students from all over Nigeria.
“This competition is just one of the many ways to empower students to achieve their full potential and provide them with opportunities for growth and success.” On her part, uLesson’s senior manager, curriculum development, Deborah Kehinde, said: “The aim is to foster deep learning and practice in these subjects, and impact the outcomes on important final year examinations.
The tournament will be divided into three stages-preliminary stage, which involves virtual examination on uLesson app. Stage one will involve shortlisting of candidates to sit for a computer-based test at locations in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt, while in the final stage, finalists will compete for the star prize at a live quiz show slated for Abuja. Students with highest scores and schools they represent will receive awards and recognition.
