Hello Peregrine Readers,

Welcome to the last day of August!

It’s been a wonderful ride in the past weeks on, but before we exhale the past events of August and inhale the excitement of september, I wish to finally bring to you–PATRIOTS FOR CHANGE (PFC) CREATIVITY CONTEST! In celebration of Nigeria’s Independence.

It’s that time of the year again where the exciting rush of events fill our minds and hands with so much creativity that we cannot but express ourselves for the passion, the fun and for the freebies!

If you followed us down the lane of #12daysofChristmas Poetry contest Last year’s Christmas, we are calling on you to journey with us again through the Independence Day contest because it’s going to be so much fun!

My sincere appreciation to everyone who participated in suggesting a title, all of your suggestions actually did suggest the title of the contest. Thank You and I hope you like it? :)

Massive thanks to Obinna Mazi who came up with the idea and creation of the banner for the contest!
