Both winners also went home with a laptop.

Each of the 12 finalists received a laptop to help them in the pursuit of their education.

Boadiwaa Mensah, the winner of the competition, expressed her happiness at winning the competition saying the scholarship will help her pursue her ambition of becoming a medical doctor.

Honourable Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, Ghana’s deputy Minister of Education, who attended the event, praised UBA Foundation for organizing the competition. He  pledged Ghana Education Service’ support to the Competition, encouraging the students to continue to improve their  reading and writing skills,  as there is are huge prospects in literature. 

“I am hoping one of you here will l emerge as Ghana’s first Nobel Prize winner in literature” He said.

Also speaking at the event, Ijeoma Aso, Managing Director of UBA foundation, the Corporate and Social Responsibility arm of the UBA Group, explained that the scholarship packages would be put in a trust fund for the winners and disbursed to them as soon as they gain admission into a university of their choice anywhere in Africa.

“The money is dedicated to the education of the three finalists. Once they get your admission letter we would disburse the money to them” she said.

Ms Aso, however, warned the three winners against indulging in social vices because the “scholarship would be canceled if a report is made that any of you is not fully focused on your studies but engaged in actions that will bring disgrace to your families and our institution”.


She also called on the remaining nine finalists to raise their heads high and be proud to have been shortlisted.

  23. Essay writing contests are very useful for students who have a humanitarian mindset and who want to develop themselves in the humanities or as writers. You do not need to turn to dictionaries to understand that a “competition” is a competition where there are winners and losers. It turns out that contests often accompany us through life. In fact, everything connected with the choice is a competition. From shopping at the store, choosing a resort, where to spend your vacation, to choosing a job, educational organization for yourself, your child, etc., these are contests. Competitions stimulate, motivate, generate movement, aspiration and development. An essay contest implies that students write an essay on their own, and not using the cheap essay writing service Buypapercheap, an essay competitions implies that students compete and try to write an essay better than others on their own, a competitive spirit awakens. Otherwise, why becomes a contestant? What are all these worries, worries and extra workload for? Competition is an opportunity to get out of the familiar comfort zone, make a leap forward and upward, to prove to yourself the limitlessness of opportunities.
