Master Ekemini Victor Obong, a 10-year-old Basic five pupil of Obele Primary School in Lawanson, Surulere, Master Ogogu Anthony, an 11 year-old Basic six pupil of Methodist Primary School, Lawanson and Master Kosi Chukwudi, a 13 year-old Basic six pupil of Subuola Nursery and Primary School, also in Lawanson, have emerged overall best at the schools level of the Amila painting Challenge.

According to Miss Feyisayo Aliu of Children of Africa Project, who is also handling the activation on behalf of Promasidor, the challenge has been greatly accepted in schools as kids are willing to participate and the teachers are on ground to help coordinate them.

"We have seen lots of beautiful paintings that would cause you to leave your mouth open. This competition has really brought out the creativity in these children and you can see the excitement in them when painting. It has been fun, fun and fun for the kids."

"I am excited that my school is participating in this challenge because it has taken the kids to a different level and you can see the excitement in them. Painting has gone beyond being just an activity for classroom and to one that will influence their creativity.
