The Children of Africa Leadership and Values Development (CALDEV) Initiative has called for entries on its maiden National Children’s Leadership Ideas Contest (N-CLIC) 2019.

CALDEV is a non-governmental organization aimed at identifying and developing leadership skills among African children.

The Founder of CALDEV, who is also a member of the House of representatives, Bamidele Salam in a press statement revealed that the N-CLIC is a unique essay writing contest for children aimed at bringing their leadership abilities and creativity to life.

The competition which targets children across Nigeria who are aged between 12 and 16 is to receive essay that must not be more than 1500 words and entrants must be original and practical on the solutions to the social, economic or political problem identified.

Salam said the essays are to be submitted at www.caldevafrica.org beginning from 20th August to 15th September 2019.

On her part, the CALDEV Executive Director, Dr Yemisi Obelawo further explained that the six best essays will participate in a grand final in Abuja on the 2nd of October 2019 to mark Nigeria’s 59th independence anniversary.
