In a bid to encourage and help more children excel educationally, actress and producer, Funke Akindele-Bello alias Jenifa, has officially declared open the entry opportunities for this year’s Kellogg’s Superstars scholarship.

The annual education-support programme, which is in its third year now, is open to all children and coincides with the world breakfast day.

Designed for primary school pupils to sharpen their creative writing skills while also bringing out the imaginative uniqueness in them, the scholarship comes as a reward for participating in an essay writing competition.

She explained that students who perform excellently in the competition would be awarded with prize money in pursuance of their education.

While encouraging mothers to ensure that breakfast time was a regular routine and sustained, the scheme’s sponsor, Kellogg’s, hosted 200 mothers to spread awareness on the importance of ensuring a regular healthy diet for the family.

Children between five and 12 years are to submit their entries by visiting Kelloggsnigeria.ng and submit essay on “how they want their perfect morning to be”.

The judging criteria are the creativity, storytelling, grammar and vocabulary and 100 winners would each be awarded scholarship worth N100,000 as educational grant while 1,000 more winners would win goodies.

Jenifa appreciated the brand for not only nourishing children but also supporting their dreams, urging mothers to encourage their children to participate in the competition.

Neha Sharma, Head of Marketing, also said: “As the entry portal for Kellogg’s Superstars scholarship 3.0 has been formally declared open, we are proud to equally announce that past winners have remained motivated by the scholarship awards, which is evidently reflecting on their individual academic performance.”
