You may recall we held a talent competition last year. Well, we’ve done it again!
DRASA partnered with World Health Organisation (WHO) Nigeria to host a talent competition for students from 2 secondary schools in Lagos.
Why 2 schools?
The 2 schools were selected because DRASA/WHO’s Health and Hygiene Club is an active co-curricular club/society in those schools. The students (as Club members) are called DRASA Ambassadors and they serve as change agents within their circles of influence – their families, schools, and wider communities. They are tasked with increasing knowledge, awareness, and driving good hygiene and sanitation practices.
The Talent Competition took place on Friday, 22nd November 2019 in celebration of World Antibiotic Awareness Week.
Each school had 2 teams of students who were asked to develop a 3 minute creative performance (drama/skit, song, rap, poem, etc.) that showcased their talent and skills and also communicated a message about antibiotic resistance, antibiotic use/misuse, and hygiene.
All 4 teams from the 2 schools had 3 weeks to prepare their creative performances and 5 independent judges were chosen from DRASA’s pool of volunteers and supporters to decide the winners.
Needless to say, it was hard to decide who came in 1st place because our Ambassadors are so talented, but after some deliberation the judges were able to choose one team of Ambassadors.
The talent competition was a great opportunity for our Youth Ambassadors to continue to showcase their knowledge and educate others in a creative, memorable way.
