Enter The University Of Sussex & Goal Nigeria #WritingGamesNG Competition

In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of Nigeria’s victory at the Men’s Football Event of the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, Goal Nigeria and the University of Sussex, United Kingdom, have announced the #WritingGamesNG, an essay writing competition.

The #WritingGamesNG theme is “The spirit of Atlanta '96 - how sport and Olympic values can promote individual and national development.”

The competition is open to final year undergraduate and post-graduate students in both Nigerian and overseas institutions and National Youth Service Corps personnel in Nigeria.

The competition is to celebrate the unprecedented victory of the Nigeria men’s football team that won Africa’s first football gold medal 20 years ago.

“We want our readers, who are mostly young and keen football fans, to cast their minds back on a time when Nigeria ruled the Olympics and how that feat can be used to promote important values on our country’s march to greatness,” said Goal Nigeria chief editor Lolade Adewuyi.

The University of Sussex joined with Goal Nigeria to promote writing in the country.

“It is often said that we all speak football but the role of education in society is often overlooked. The University of Sussex is delighted to team up with Goal on the #WritingGamesNG to promote education via sports and vice-versa. Sussex is a top 20 UK university just an hour from London; we offer a sports scholarships scheme and £5,000 Sussex Nigeria Scholarships,” said Tosin Adebisi, Senior International Officer at the University of Sussex.

The competition will be judged by Professor Richard Follett from the University of Sussex, Professor Dipo Salami from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, and the Goal Nigeria Editorial Board. The competition is also supported by AIESEC Nigeria.

The Gold Medal winner will be awarded a certificate of achievement from the University of Sussex and Goal Nigeria as well as a four-day trip to the Writivism 2016 Festival in Kampala, Uganda. The winning entry will also be published on the websites of Goal.com and the University of Sussex.

The winner will also be matched with a mentor from Writivism to help with professional development.

The Silver and Bronze Medal winners will receive certificates of achievement and will win placement opportunities at Goal Nigeria to undertake internships. Both entries will be published on Goal.com.

All three finalists will have an opportunity to contribute editorials towards Goal.com coverage of the Olympic Games and will also receive branded items from Sussex and other partners.

Entries must be between 500 and 750 words and should be sent to nigeria.competitions@goal.com no later than midnight August 6, 2016. Winners will be announced on August 12, 2016.
