Sterling Bank organises fashion competition for undergraduates


In a bid to discover and celebrate the creativity of the Nigerian youth, Sterling Bank is set to organise a fashion competition for undergraduates of tertiary institutions in Lagos State.

The competition, which is part of the bank’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts in the education sector, according to a statement, seeks to transform the perception artistically inclined undergraduates have of themselves in relation to corporate organisations, their acceptability and the difference they can make given the opportunity and a suitable platform.

The competition tagged ‘Sketchamania’ is a break from the norm and an unequivocal statement by Sterling Bank that it seeks to identify new opportunities to make a difference in a distinct manner by impacting society through deliberate interventions aimed at encouraging and celebrating unique talents, which abound in Nigeria.

According to the bank’s group head of strategy & communications, Shina Atilola, participants are to upload their sketched designs on the bank’s Facebook page. The creators of the top 10 designs will be given some amount of money to produce their designs. The designs so brought to life will be showcased at the final event billed for April 20, 2013 at the University of Lagos Main Auditorium.

The top three finalists will get N1, 000,000.00, N500, 000.00, and N250, 000.00, respectively. Other details of the competition can be gotten from the bank’s Facebook page.
