The third edition of the Chemistry Challenge for secondary schools has commenced with entries being received from students in SS3 classes in public and private schools in Lagos State. The call-to-entry will run till November 4, 2015, and participants will not be charged any fee.

The formal launch will hold next Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Previously known as PZ Cussons Chemistry Challenge, the initiative of PZ Cussons Foundation is being sponsored this year by Carex, a product of PZ Cussons Nigeria Plc.

Carex Brand Manager, Oluwaseun Ayeni, announced that the 2015 edition will be more exciting than the previous two editions as additional opportunities for the public to challenge their intellect and win fabulous prizes have been introduced.

Ayeni disclosed that apart from the scholarships and cash rewards worth over N3 million for the four finalists, the rest of the Top 10, teachers and schools of finalists, a four-month online Carex Hygiene Challenge will run from October with winners emerging every month. 

The Lagos State Government, through the Ministry of Education, has again given approval and support to the competition, as it did in the first two editions. PZCCC also enjoys the endorsement of the Chemical Society of Nigeria, the Institute of Chartered Chemists of Nigeria and the National Parents Teachers’ Association of Nigeria.

Ayeni also said that only two students per school will be allowed to participate in the competition, and therefore encouraged each school to send in its best Chemistry students. Students are to be endorsed by their schools, and candidates are advised to provide their reachable phone numbers and email addresses through which examination centres would be communicated to them.

Eligible participants are advised to visit the project website and check the ‘registration’ portal to register.

This year, a designated blog has been created and embedded on the PZCCC website. It will be exploited to allow followers to follow and review the content. Also added is a PZCCC youtube channel to share videos online.

In the inaugural edition two years ago, Emmanuel Ejiogu Onyekachi of Miketoy College, Ikotun, Lagos State, won the first prize. Runners-up were Obi Uchenna David, Mgbemena Thankgod and Victor Ike-Okoro.

Last year, Nwaoha Justin Ifeanyi, representing ISOLOG College, Ojodu, Lagos State, emerged the ultimate winner. Runners-up were Animashaun Jamiu, Abayomi Balogun Azeez and Onu Jeremiah.
