Guaranty Trust Bank plc. has organised a national competition for children, which is set to promote the Nigerian native languages and sustain national cultural heritage.

To participate, children are expected to get a picture of any significant monument in Nigeria and describe it in their Mother Tongue. The picture of the monument can be obtained from newspaper clippings, online or the kids can take the picture themselves.
Completed entries are to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org not later than September 07, 2015, with a detailed description of the monument accompanied by its name, location and language of description along with the senders name and age.
