To commemorate International Youth Day, Junior Achievement Nigeria developed the Youth Entrepreneurship Essay Competition, in partnership with Access Bank Nigeria. The essay competition was created to provide a platform for the youth to suggest possible solutions that highlight how entrepreneurship can help to solve the youth unemployment crisis in Nigeria. Young people from different parts of the
world contributed to this discussion, and at the close of the competition, we received over 2,000 essays. The winner of the competition will be announced in the month of September via select social media channels nationwide. Through these essays, we have once again seen the unlimited potential of Nigeria’s youth and we are further committed to developing our young conscientious business leaders who will lead a vibrant economy.
