You + a super creative mind capable of carrying out actions that can influence formulation and implementation of policies. Are you up to the task?

policies that can support small scale farmers especially women and youth).
Entries will be accepted from students across tertiary institutions in Nigeria. Entries are required to speak to at least one of these 3 themes:
1. a . Put your mouth where your Food is: SpeakUp for Farmers
Ever wondered what would happen if farmers went on an indefinite strike? No jokes. It could happen! The #Beneueflooding wreaked so much havoc on so many farms and so did other flooding across the Country! Farmers need help. But importantly, they need you to #SpeakUp for them. So? turn on your creative swag and speak for them.
1. Right2Food na Right2LIFE: a Hungry Man na Angry Man
Where hunger begins, rationality ends!!! So, put on your ogbonge thinking ‘helmet’ and help draw attention to our call that NASS and the Presidency and all States Legislatures and Governors urgently make FOOD a RIGHT in Nigeria.
1. More Money to Farmers, More FOOD on the TABLE. Lets Walk the Talk.
The most important restructuring we need in Nigeria is Stomach Restructuring through correct agriculture. Small scale farmers need more money and support to continue to feed us and help grow this economy. But that’s not going to happen by magic is it? Someone got to shine the light for our government to see the needful. Oya, enter the race, wear your genius lens and show us some creativity.
