Methodist Girls High School, Lagos has won the maiden edition of Maritime Quiz Competition for Secondary Schools.
Quiz moderator, Mrs Violet Williams said at the end of the competition in Lagos that Mind Builders emerged as first runner up while Regency School became second runner up.
10 secondary schools participated.
She said the rationale behind the competition was to expose the participants to the maritime industry and guide them to the “Career of the Future.”
Williams, who is also the Principal Partner of Vow Ventures, said her firm had exposed the students to the shipping environment before engaging in the competition to raise their interest in shipping career.
“We want to demystify the aspect of no-go- area in the maritime sector and we have discovered that some school owners do not know anything about shipping.
Shipping is a global and international business, and it is in the nation’s best interest to invest in the future by catching them young, thus making them economically and professionally children self sufficient when they leave school.”
