Nigerian college student wins World Scavenger Hunt Award
A pupil of Caleb British International School, Lekki, Lagos State, Toluwalase Oseni, has emerged winner of the 2020 World Scavenger Hunt Award.
The event, an annual global entrepreneurial competition, drew participants from the United States of America and other countries.
While declaring Oseni as winner at the event which held virtually, the programme coordinator, Diamond Challenge, Mrs Rachel Strauss, said each of the finalists were assessed on their level of critical thinking, creativity and leadership qualities.
Strauss said the challenge was established in 2012 by the University of Delaware in the United States to identify entrepreneurially talented high school pupils and teams with ideas on issues affecting their generation.
She disclosed that prior to the emergence of the winners in the eight award categories, all the finalists had undergone a four-week special e-learning training by some upwardly mobile entrepreneurs from around the world.
Strauss explained that the move was aimed at exposing them to different skills on how to succeed as entrepreneurs before the submission of their pitch deck and video presentation of their ideas to the judges.
