The Olabisi Onabajo University Achivers’ Awards (OOUAA) is aimed at rewarding excellence in several areas of endeavour amongst undergraduates at the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun State, Nigeria. It is the brain child of Dreamakers’ Int’l-a social enterprise seeking to walk the talk of providing solutions to the developmental needs of young people in Nigeria.
The OOUAA, is first in a series of Achivers’ Awards to be held in the coming months. It is an attempt at rewarding excellence and creativity amongst members of communities comprising mostly of young people, it is hoped that by rewarding those doing positively well in a world that mostly celebrates the odd and wrong, others may be prompted to do some good too, and those with great ideas may be encouraged to bring forth their ideas into reality.
The OOUAA, which is billed to hold, in march 2008, will feature the following award categories and in all reward 101 outstanding individuals :
- Creativity/good use of talent
- Personal growth
Nominations will open soon, my advice is: watch this space.
