Greenlife Pharmaceuticals & Organizers of Rising Star Writing Competition Reward Winners with Fantastic PrizesOrganizers of Rising Star Writing Competition have rewarded winners of the third edition of their nationwide writing competition for children with fantastic prizes, comprising laptops, television sets, tablet computers and printers. The award ceremony was held on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at Annes Luxury Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos. The annual competition is organized by The Writers Corner in collaboration with Vuvuzela Communications Limited and sponsored by Greenlife Pharmaceuticals Limited.In her welcome address, the Coordinator, Rising Star Writing Competition, Mrs. Uche Udoji, said the ceremony was not just to award deserving winners, but to inspire every child desirous of being a writer to pick up and develop their writing skills. “The future belongs to these young ones and writing is among the keys to the future. Writing paints the voice, thereby allowing children to express themselves confidently, hence the need to inspire children to write need to be over-emphasized,” Udoji said. She noted that 307 entries were received nationwide and 25 pupils stood out in the competition which covered poetry and story writing. Mrs. Udoji urged parents, teachers, guardians, and schools to place emphasis on literacy, especially creative writing, so as to ignite a love for writing in the children from a young age. *Mrs. Uche Udoji, Coordinator Rising Star Writing Competition and CEO The Writers Corner, Lagos. The chairman of the occasion, Mrs. Ifeoma Nwosu, wife of the managing Director of Greenlife Pharmaceuticals, Chief Ebele Nwosu, said the sponsoring the writing competition is one of the ways the pharmaceutical company is giving back to the society. She said, “This is a noble cause to encourage the young children. We don’t have a good education system again, but the little we can do, we would continue to ensure we get it right again.” *Mrs. Ifeoma Nwosu, Chairman of the Occasion presenting one the prizes to one of the winners.Also, the Head of Human Resources and Public Relations of Greenlife pharmaceutical, Mrs. Amaka Nwosisi, challenged other corporate bodies to shift their focus from entertainment and invest in the education of the young pupils. “We have to get to the point of making the prizes of reading and writing competition attractive to the young children so that they would be encouraged. Reading and writing culture is dying because of the value the society placed on them. This competition was birthed to revive the reading and writing habit in our society, by catching the attention of these children before they grow to be adults” Nwosisi said. *Mrs. Amaka Nwosisi, Head of HR and PR of Greenlife Pharmaceuticals.Nine-year-old Jailyn Nsofor from Corona Schools, Lagos emerged as the first position in poetry while eight-year-old Demilade Olaere from Livingspring School Lagos came top in the short story category for the primary school pupils.
