In 2001 the NNPC, recognizing the importance of education to the development of our dear country,introduced the annual national quiz competition for secondary schools across the country.
The competition starts from the state level and moves to the zonal level where a zonal winner emerges from the six geo-political zones in the country. Winners from the six zones compete at the grand finale and representatives of the winning state are awarded scholarships for their tertiary education by the NNPC apart from other mouth-watering prizes given to the best three states.
The competition is considered by the NNPC as a development process and encouragement of excellence amongst secondary school students across the country who are the future leaders of this great nation.
The decision by the NNPC to sponsor the national quiz competition is part of its corporate social responsibility and in furtherance of its quest to touch the lives of Nigerians in many positive ways
