  1. Are participants to write on each topic in a stage weekly and if selected then move to the second stage? Or can we pick a stage, say stage 2, then write on the topics?

    1. Hi Toluwaniyi,

      I apologize for the late response. Yes participants are to write on specified topics every week and you can pick any of the stages. At the Grand Finale, the shortlisted participants from each of the stages will now compete for winners.

      I hope this answers your question.

    1. Hi Kikelomo,

      You can write on different topics every week. just make sure the topics are picked from the available topics for each of the stages.
      For example, in stage 1, you can pick from – Female entrepreneurship, domestic violence, women fashion trends, gender-based violence or the life of a career woman.

      As a result of the inconveniences that participants encounter in contacting their campus editors, we have decided to upload a platform, on this website, where participants will be able to register and upload their articles directly to our server. I will be showing you the link latest by tomorrow.


      1. Can I write on topic in the three stages sat, the first week I pick a topic from stage 1 the second week stage two or I just write in one stage.

        1. Hello Oluwatemilorun,

          If you are writing for stage 1, you must pick all your topics from stage 1. The first week, you pick a topic out of the topics in stage 1. The second week, you pick another topic from stage 1. Third week, another topic from stage 1.

          If you are going for stage 2, then all the topics must be taken from stage 2. Same thing applies for stage 3.

          I hope this answers your question
