BOWEN WOVEN WORDS COMPETITION 2018 WAS A HUGE SUCCESS

(My Woven Words Secretary, Abimbola Ajewole)

 

(Mr Olumide Ajayi presenting My Woven Words and what Bowen Woven Words Competition was all about)
“Imagination
gives birth to things unknown but the writer’s pen turns them into shapes and
gives to them living breaths.” The necessity of writing can never be over
emphasized, the importance of writing/online publication is one of the reasons
why My Woven Words was created about sixteen months back.
Bowen
University is an esteemed Citadel of knowledge owned by Nigerian Baptist
Convention, this University is blessed with intellectually saturated students
who also believe that; “the pen is mightier that the sword.” This common
knowledge compelled myself and My Woven Words Team members to spearhead a
“first-of-its-kind” writing competition where Bowenites will write about Bowen
University. The University graciously approved the competition and provided support
in every possible way which made it possible for Bowen-Woven-Words Competition
to be a huge success.
I
heartily and sincerely appreciate the unwavering support, and consistent hard
work of “My Woven Words” team members who shouldered the responsibilities of
organizing this “best-of-its-kind” writing competition when I had to leave
school for my six months industrial training while the competition was still
ongoing, starting from our able secretary; Ajewole ABIMBOLA (Pepe), Adigun
OLUWASEYI (Prince Adx), Olumide MOSOPEFOLUWA, Shobowale TOLULOPE Enoch
