Excel Community Leadership Award & Short Story Contest

The Board and Management of Excel Magazine International, Africa’s predominant development oriented magazine with spread across North America, Asia and Europe says held the first edition of EXCEL COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP AWARD holding on Wednesday, December 28th 2016 in Owerri, the Imo State capital, Nigeria.

Publisher of the international multimedia brand, Mr. Boniface Ihiasota stated that the ceremony was produced to celebrate the uncommon landmark of people who have made it through hard work and are contributing to the development of Imo State.

According to Ihiasota, “We felt the need to encourage certain persons who have over the years, reduced hunger, crime and unemployment in our communities by creating job opportunities through their private businesses and efforts so that other persons may be encouraged to emulate them”.

The Excel Magazine Publisher stated that the event was the first in a series of programmes planned by the media outfit to promote responsible citizenship among Imo indigenes at home and in the Diaspora.

The event featured the grand finale of a special short story competition tagged, “EXCEL ETHICAL SCRIPT SHORT STORY CONTEST” for primary, secondary and tertiary students in Imo State.  The contest was aimed at exploring the writing talents of Imo children and youths and creating a platform for them to showcase and develop it as a way of helping them to make the best use of their lives. This was part of the corporate social responsibility of Excel Magazine.

The event held at Newton Hotel, along Port Harcourt Road in Owerri attracted the presence of Imo State Deputy Governor’s Representative, and several other dignitaries from within and outside Nigeria.

It also featured a special fashion display by Tekay Designs, a United States based fashion label.
