HAPPY INDEPENDENCE, NIGERIA! WE CELEBRATE YOU!!!
Hello Peregrine reader,
Yesterday, I posted about the #PatriotsForChange Contest QUIZ which was to take place on THE PEREGRINE READS BBM CHANNEL. I want to use this medium to thank the participants and winners of the Quiz. As it promised to be, it was indeed FUN!
Welcome to the end of the second Episode of THE PEREGRINE READS ANNUAL BLOG CONTEST entitled #PatriotsForChange.
As you may already know, Peregrine Reads is a platform that Promotes creativity and passion and we actively achieve this through episodic contest that motivate and encourage creativity in every one of all kinds, ages and skills.
The Peregrine Reads had her Maiden Blog contest on the 14th of December entitled “#12DAYSOFCHRISTMAS POETRYCHALLENGE” and now, the second blog contest which began on the 16th of September entitled “#PATRIOTSFORCHANGE CREATIVITY CONTEST”.
Today, I’m happy to announce to you that the #PATRIOTSFORCHANGE contest birthed to promote patriotism among NIGERIANS in the spirit of NIGERIA’S INDEPENDENCE has now come to a successful end.
Who were the Judges?
There were no Judges for the contest. The contest took a different turn from December’s contest. In the contest, the contestants had their Likes and shares as judges. Basically, the Likes and Shares spoke for itself.
The contest was initially organised to be judged “STRICTLY” by virtue of the most “LIKES” but with E-mail conversations with the contestants, all of the figures on the “SHARE” and “LIKE” buttons on each contestant’s works had to be added altogether as each contestant’s score for a fairer judgement and to enable contestants easily promote their work via all social media platforms.
This was successfully achieved.
Let’s have a look at the TOTAL SCORES of the 13 Contestants for the #PATRIOTSFORCHANGE Creativity Contest who have shown so much enthusiasm in rendering their creativity as tools of patriotism…
