2016 Sama Randy Youth Write Winners!

Hello Everyone!!!

We’re pleased to announce that this year’s Sama Randy Youth Write Competition has come and gone successfully.

This year we received over thirty submissions from universities all over the country and even received an entry in French! The judges did an awesome job in using the limited time to narrow down our top three winners.

As proof that this year’s campaign had a vast outreach, each winner hails from a school in a different Cameroonian region!

Our 1st Prize of 100.000 FCFA has been awarded to
Ubangoh Thursie Abanjoh
An 18 year old undergraduate Management student of the Catholic University of Cameroon, Bamenda in the Northwest Regio

Congratulations to them all.
Congratulations to those who tried as well. The effort was commendable and the competition stiff!
We also say a very big ‘Thank you’ to Big Steps (a fellow youth-led, youth empowerment initiative focusing on issues of health) which partnered with us by increasing the award money for this year’s competition.

Awards were handed to the winners on 11th February, Cameroon’s Youth Day after a celebratory lunch by our coordinator Monique Kwachou, our newest active member Melissa Longla, and Ashoka Changemaker scholar Gabila Franklin
