African queen Limited in partnership with Bic Uganda has on Friday the 26th of February 2020 awarded 5 school-going children with 100 USD each under a competition tagged ‘My Super LockDown Experience’.
The Super Lockdown Experience competition has been ongoing for 2 months now, targeting children in upper primary (P4-P7) to share their experience about the new normal caused by Covid-19 and its protocol.
Under the competition, children were told to write a story explaining their learning, challenges, and most importantly the effect it has had on them.
Yasin Ssebaduka Mboowa the trade marketing manager of African Queen ltd, the purpose of the competition was to support the parents and pupils by providing school fees to the children ahead of going back to school.
He adds that the program was televised during the home-schooling program on TV and digital pages attracting over 167 entries from different pupils across the country.
Edwin Kibuuka Kizito, one of the teachers who marked the participants says children were told to use a ball pen either blue or black to write their stories and were later marked basing on different criteria like; grammar, composition & handwriting.
A jubilating Jolly Nakato from Holy Family Junior School emerged as the overall winner of the competition, she advised fellow learners to always listen to educative programs on TV to better their understanding.
