Cadbury Nigeria Plc has said that winners of Season 4 of its Bourn Factor School Talent Competition have emerged.
The company, in a statement, noted that the winners emerged from different states across the country.
It disclosed that the competition, which has been running since 2019, rewards winning schools with monetary prizes and sponsorship of a social impact activity of their choice.
According to the company, Golden Treasure Model Nursery and Primary School, Abeokuta, Ogun State won the grand prize of N3m.
Evanna Vision Academy, Benin City, Edo State, which came second, won N2m, while Treasure Gold Kiddies Academy, Akure, Ondo State, placed third, and won N1m.
The Managing Director of Cadbury West Africa, Oyeyimika Adeboye, said the company was committed to the mental well-being of children and would continue to sponsor campaigns that promote the interest of children.
She said, “We realise that a lot of children have an affinity for extracurricular activities apart from the usual curriculum and that is why the Bourn Factor School Talent Competition endeavours to recognise and encourage kids to showcase these talents. It was imperative for Bournvita to provide ample investment in the talent and education of children, our key consumers, by partnering with schools.”
In his remarks, Category Manager, Cocoa Beverages and Biscuits, Cadbury West Africa, Tolu Olaoye, said, “We see ourselves as partners to parents and guardians, equipping their children with 16 essential vitamins and minerals, such as iron, zinc and calcium, for healthy growth and mental alertness.
“Bournvita is also keen on improving digital literacy. We have done this by providing well-equipped and conducive computer laboratories to past school winners of the Bourn Factor School Talent Competition. We also require winning schools to suggest a charity which we support financially and materially. We believe all these are investments into the future and health of our country.”
