Twenty students have made it to the grand finale of the MTN mPulse Spelling Bee Competition 2022.
The competition which commenced in August for primary and secondary school students in Nigeria is gradually wrapping up the edition with the top 20 students vying for the grand prize.
The finale which is slated to hold on November 26, 2022 at the MTN Plaza, Falomo, Ikoyi will host participating students, school representatives, teachers, and parents who will attend to cheer their wards on to win the competition. Participants are expected to spell words with different degrees of difficulty, usually at a higher level than in the previous rounds.
The winner of the mPulse Spelling Bee Competition will be awarded a Scholarship grant, a laptop, a smartphone, and a mPulse Goody Bag. MTN will also extend gifts such as premium ICT Devices, including 10 laptops and 10 Hynet modems to the winner’s school.
Speaking on the reason for establishing the competition, the Chief Marketing Officer, MTN Nigeria, Adia Sowho stated, “We remain committed to providing more enabling platforms for youth education and empowerment in our communities with the hope that this edition keeps our kids goal orientated, competitive, and resilient to conquer challenges.”
The champion from the finale will go on to become MTN Nigeria’s CEO for a day and actively participate in the smooth running of the organisation for the day.
