In a bid to celebrate Nigerian children as well as promote good nutrition, Fidson Healthcare Plc is rewarding pupils from different geopolitical zones of the country as part of efforts to impact positively on their academic development and performance.
The Pharmaceutical Company has in the last seven years continued to invest in the children through its flagship children academic reward programme tagged: “Astymin Brilliance Reward” ABR.
The event billed to hold July 29, 2017 at the Ndubuisi Kanu Park, Alausa, Ikeja will host over 200 best-performing children from public and private primary schools across the South-West, South-East and South –South regions.
According to the Marketing Manager, Fidson Healthcare Plc., Mr Friday Enaholo, the reward was designed to enhance their mental and academic performances.
They will be recognised and rewarded with certificates of excellence and valuable prizes.
Enahalo explained that Fidson is committed to supporting children in all their academic endeavours, through its Astymin brand, in line with its corporate brand promise of valuing lives.
“Like we have always emphasised, the ABR is our attempt to bring back the glory days of our education by throwing our weight behind the children’s drive for academic excellence.
“We believe it is better to catch them young and put them on the right path to success. Astymin will continue to take the giant stride in rewarding brilliant children”, he said.
Enaholo noted that Astymin Brilliance Reward is the brand’s biggest and most prestigious event. “Every month, there is an Astymin Genius of the Month essay competition. Essentially, students in primary schools in Lagos state write an essay on a topic agreed upon by their teachers. The teachers also assess them and choose the best of the entries. Astymin then rewards the child with prizes, which include valuable educational materials. There are also other online activities going on the Astymin Official website, www.myastymin.com and other social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.”
