6 winners clinched 25 000 FCFA Each!

Climate change awareness subsists as a primordial prerequisite in climate actions. Lack of data, interest and youth participation in climate change endeavours accounts for this knowledge gap. In a bid to create a knowledge niche on climate change in Dschang, ICAD Enterprise launched the first edition of the ICADCommonwealth Creative Writing Competition. In consortium with the Commonwealth Club of the University of Dschang, this activity was perfectly timed to commemorate the 2020 edition of the Commonwealth Day, on 09th March 2020. 

All You needed was to Think creatively, write… and boom! you bag home 25000FCFA, Very rare in our context
