Essay Competition: Week 13 Winner.

Humble Ogbonna has won the N10,000 cash prize for week 13 with the essay titled: An Embarrassing ‘Flagrant Delicto’.

A judge described the essay thus: “This is it for me. I love the good command of English and sequencing. The story is relatable, probably because I understood the struggle of avoiding children’s food in schools. Again, I actually tried to align it with the other essay topic, the effect of poverty on social life….without much effort and a different ending, this could also win it.”

Unfortunately, Humble provided no picture for easy identification. However, the fact that a first entry won this week’s competition shows that we have to watch out for more essays from this writer. Congrats and keep writing.



A very interesting week 13!
The topics were diverse but overall soul searching.

Insecurity In Northern Nigeria And Possible Solutions by Oluka Emmanuel is a top essay. Well written with detailed points and attributes. Oluka seamlessly blends his creative and research writing skills.

Caught Red Handed by Favour Charles and Through The Eyes Of An ‘Other’ by Rekanor Mbeh are worthy mentions. These writers will go places with their writing skills

We received 16 entries this week. Fourteen in all. One failed to meet the word count and the rest were published. Please endeavour to read the instructions for each week and also read our general rules.

While we compete to win in every competition, we must not lose sight of the objective here which is to get us writing, reading and thinking. That is how we become better writers, readers, thinkers and ultimately better humans!
We thank you all for being part of this journey.
Next up will be the topics for week 14.
