The Restored Heart Foundation is seeking applications for the Young Historian Competition to promote Nigerian history amongst young Nigerians specifically students studying in Nigeria Universities to create a path of history awareness with a burning desire to uphold the values and strong leadership skills cutting across all fairs of life.
It is obvious to note that the younger generation is beginning to lose touch with Nigerian history which is/will affect the social-political existence of Nigeria and her people. The competition is to bring together wider knowledge and awareness within and outside Nigeria to create a mindset of consciousness with the younger generation. The Young Historian Competition is an annual inter-universities competition.
