ESSAYS ON ‘THE RIVERS STATE OF MY DREAMS’ – SHORTLISTED ENTRIES

In celebration of Children’s Day and the Rivers State Golden Jubilee in May, the Rainbow Book Club organised an essay competition for primary and secondary school students on the topic ‘The Rivers State of my Dreams’. We got some fantastic entries from 72 students from 14 schools. After much deliberation, we have come up with a shortlist of 15 students; 5 from primary schools, 4 from Junior Secondary schools and 6 from Senior Secondary Schools.

The judges for the competition are Port Harcourt authors, Chimeka Garricks (who wrote Tomorrow Died Yesterday) and Kaine Agary (who wrote Yellow Yellow).

Below are the details of the candidates that made the shortlist.
