Patrons and Sponsors Prize (Pas Prize) is an academic enrichment activity aimed at promoting academic excellence in secondary school students in Nigeria by connecting winners to Education and Talent Patrons and Sponsors supporting the educational growth of young promising students.
The 2016 pilot edition started as a pet project of the founder Miss Nina Mbah during her National Youth service in Funtua Katsina state. It brought together 27 schools in Funtua and its environs for the competitions. While the 2017 Beta phases in Kaduna state is aimed at improving, creating sustainability and expansion strategies for the program.
The sequence of PasPrize activities involves a four (4) step procedure that summaries her mission to “Challenge, Discover and Reward outstanding students” as follows:
- Internal school competitions and selections
- Zonal competitions and selections
- State Competition and Award Ceremony
- Monitoring and Mentoring
The zonal competitions in Kaduna state began in June 2017 rounding up in September 2017 in preparation for the state finals in October 2017.
