In an attempt to promote creativity among children,  Promasidor Nigeria Limited, makers of Amila powered soft drink; has flagged off its Amila Painting Challenge in about 200 primary schools across 20 local government areas in Lagos under the first stage of the competition.

Under this stage, an art teacher in each of the selected schools will conduct a general painting competition among the pupils of the school to determine the best 10 that will participate on the Amila Day, that is the day of the activation from where an overall best winner will emerge to represent the school at each local government level.

According to Miss Feyisayo Aliu of Children of Africa Project, leader of team three, handling the activation on behalf of Promasidor, the challenge has been greatly accepted in schools as kids are willing to participate and the teachers are on ground to help coordinate them.

 “So far we have seen lots of beautiful paintings that would make your mouth open. It competition has really brought out the creativity in children that you can see the excitement in them when painting and how other kids are wishing they were selected for the competition. It has been fun, fun and fun for the kids.”
