As the year is taking its bow, it is with great delight I must honestly and sincerely admit that this year has been quite eventful. As a child barely grows before his/her parents, I also must say that DAILY DIET has barely grown in my eyes. But, then, DAILY DIET has left its infancy. With more than 4 years down the line, and with several articles and short stories in our archive, I can not help but declare that it has been God all the way. With 2017 peeping through the door, it is highly expedient that I share this goodnews with you.
PROJECT "I FOUND IT"
For the record, DAILY DIET has been coming your way from the stable of Swift 24 Multimedia Services, a publishing firm based in the heart of Ibadan. For 2017, Swift 24 Multimedia Services has decided to take a giant stride by launching project I FOUND IT. The project is aimed at discovering, building and grooming young writers, especially secondary school students. We believe that helping these young writers discover their talents at a tender age would greatly prepare them for their future quests. The project entails different writing competitions (Essay, Short Story, Poetry, Drama, etc.) where the best writer(s) would be singled out for awards and free publishing contracts. In the nearest future, these best writers(s) would be awarded free scholarship that would see them through their secondary school education. Also, in the nearest future, the project would be taken to orphanages to discover the best writers among them, and to finance them through their secondary, and tertiary education (if possible).
The winners in the orphanages would be treated with much regard and attention as we would solicit for sponsorship and support to train them in the best schools around. Orphans with extreme cases would also be singled out for scholarship as well, as we strongly believe that education is the best legacy one can ever give a child.
May, 2017 has been slated for the maiden edition of I FOUND IT, and the maiden edition would witness participants from selected schools in Ibadan. The participants would be made to write a highly creative story on an impromptu topic that would be given to them on the day of the competition. This is because, we would like to discourage cases of malpractice and plagiarism. As the Lord expands our coast, we would spread our tentacles to other cities in the country, and the world at large. But, before the scheduled date, a smaller version of I FOUND IT would kick off this coming January at Mustard Seed Unilab, also located in Ibadan. Mustard Seed Unilab is a tutorial centre that sees to the training and teaching of secondary and post-secondary school students for their tertiary institution adventure. This smaller version of I FOUND IT would run monthly for students of the aforementioned tutorial centre till May, when the main event would be held.
It should however be established that the sole purpose of I FOUND IT is to discover young writers, and guide them on their way to stardom. The competition would be TOTALLY FREE to all participants, and the winners would also be published for FREE, without paying a dim. This is our way of giving back to the society, and our own way of saying, "Change begins with me".
