Ecobank National Essay Competition for Children 2016

Ecobank National Essay Competition for Children 2016

Ecobank Nigeria Limited has opened its annual national essay competition for children as part of activities to commemorate the May month dedicated to children around the world. The Ecobank National Essay competition for children with the Ecobank MyFirst Account calls for entries from students between the ages 8 to 12 in category one and ages 9 to 14 in category two.

The competition was instituted to commemorate the banking month as well as being part of the process to push the frontiers of academic excellence among the young ones in society.

We acknowledge the importance of our customers, young and old, to Ecobank’s ongoing success story. The bank, whose vision is to build a world-class pan-African bank and contribute to the economic development and financial integration of Africa, sees educational development as fulcrum for positive integration.
