Mobile Classroom, an application that makes students to experience classroom-based learning via mobile devices, has announced a monthly scholarship quiz competition.
In a statement, Akeem Salami, chief executive officer of Save-A-Lot Media Limited and initiator of the app, said the quiz is aimed at motivating Nigerian students to academic greatness.
He said it is designed to promote quality performance in the senior secondary school examinations organised by the West African Examination Council (WAEC), National Examination Council (NECO) and Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
“It is time for a paradigm shift in the way we handle Nigerian education system. This is why Mobile Classroom App has decided to embark on a monthly reward system in the form of a scholarship scheme among Nigeria students,” he said.
“This is to motivate them towards engagement in more productive learning and to inspire students towards education.”
He said between 50 and 200 contestants would win N20,000 monthly; the top best three students would be “EduHeroes for the month” and celebrated in their respective schools alongside the school management and their subject teachers.
Salami said the organisation would continue to use media technology to push the quality of education in Nigeria.
