Towards promoting Canadian raw materials outside of the country, the Canadian Centre for Raw Materials Display Inc. (CACERMDI), has initiated an essay competition among Nigerian students.

The initiative aims to raise awareness about the importance of sustainable resource management and to foster a sense of global collaboration in the utilisation of natural resources, the President of the centre, Osagie Leo Ekhaguere has disclosed.

He said in a statement that the competition, which is open to students in tertiary institutions in Nigeria, will focus on the raw materials of Saskatchewan, Alberta, and Manitoba in Canada, as well as Lagos, Edo, Ogun, Oyo, Ebonyi and Enugu states in Nigeria.

“This competition presents a unique opportunity for students to showcase their research and writing skills, while also learning about the natural resources that play a pivotal role in the development of these regions”, he added.

Ekhaguere disclosed that the participants will not only have the chance to win cash prizes and be named CACERMDI Youth Ambassadors in Nigeria but also have their essays published in the esteemed CACERMDI Book of Essays, stressing that “This is a fantastic platform for students to have their voices heard and to contribute to the ongoing conversation about sustainability and resource management on a global scale.

“This competition is a wonderful opportunity for students to engage with important environmental and sustainability issues, and to contribute to the conversation surrounding the responsible use of natural resources.

“By participating in this competition, students can make a difference in the world and help promote global cooperation in the management of raw materials”, he said.

Giving details of the modalities for the entries, the president gave the deadline for the application as March 29, 2024, and encouraged students to start their research and begin crafting their essays.

The top seven entrants, he revealed, will be chosen to participate in a quiz competition, urging interested students to visit the CACERMDI website at www.cacermdi.ca.
