Public and private secondary schools across the country have been urged to register their best JSS 3 and SSS 2 candidates for the 2018 Cowbellpedia Senior Secondary Mathematics Television Quiz Show on or before the deadline of Sunday, February 11, which is just about three weeks away.
Promasidor Nigeria Limited, makers of Cowbell milk, announced 100 per cent increase in the star prize from N1 million to N2m, in addition to other incentives.
It was the highlight of the activities to commemorate 20 years of partnership between Cowbell and Mathematics.
Registration for this year’s Cowbellpedia competition is strictly online via the website: and it is absolutely free, with each school entitled to put forward five candidates who must be between 10 and 18 years old for each of the junior and senior categories.
In order to encourage girl child education, mixed schools are advised to nominate at least two female students in each of the categories.
Speaking about the registration process recently in Lagos, Abiodun Ayodeji, the Marketing Manager of Promasidor Nigeria Limited, makers of Cowbell – Our Milk and sponsors of the competition, explained that, the guidelines require the candidates/school to go to the website and fill the form and submit
Ayodeji further said that when all the data had been completed for all the candidates (a maximum of five per category), the “Register” button should be clicked to complete the registration process.
“A confirmation slip will be generated to download and will also be mailed to the school, candidate or parent/guardian’s email address. Print the confirmation slip and have it stamped and signed by the school principal. The confirmation slip will be required for admitting candidates at the examination venue,” he explained.
He emphasised that each school should nominate their best students to boost their chances all through to the final.
All the candidates with confirmation slips will sit for the Stage 1 Qualifying Written Examination at their designated centres nationwide on Saturday, February 17, 2018.
