They emerged winners of the “Talent Boom” contest, which was part of the activities to mark the 2015 Children’s Day celebration. The competition featured students from 28 primary schools in a supremacy battle to win the much-coveted prize.

The firm also provided educational materials and stationery to select public schools. They are Ijaiye Okokoro Primary School; Tonia Primary School; Ebenezer Primary School, and Meiran Memorial School. In his remarks, marketing executive of the sponsoring outfit, Mr. Ugochukwu Richard, said the yearly event was the firm’s way of helping to improve the standard of education in Nigeria and encouraging brilliant students in the society.

He said, “Tecno is not only about buying and selling. We have identified the need to improve the standard of education that is why we decided to sponsor this event every year to mark Children’s Day.

In this country where we have several talented people, there are several students who do not have opportunities to excel despite their gift.The scholarship that we give them will go a long way in their life and will also convey a message on the importance of hard work and reading.” “The ‘Talent Boom’ is a great idea that everyone will want to be a part of. Our theme for this year is ‘Give the Children a Future’.

That is why Tecno is supporting the children morally and academically. We are glad that three students won the scholarship.
