Research shows that about 2.6 million youths die annually from drug abuse and other negative vices which makes it very urgent to raise a generation of youth who will grow deep in God’s Word through our Bible Quiz for Secondary Schools.

The Bible Society of Nigeria through its National Secondary Schools Bible Competition has been inculcating moral values in the youths. We can change the horrible statistics.

The youth ages 0-19 years form about 42.54% of the Nigeria population. The Secondary School ages in Nigeria are 9 years -19 years. This class of young people are also most vulnerable to social vices and abuses. They are victims of rape, drugs, cultism, thuggery, etc.

They can now have their lives transformed through the word of God.

 Where We Help The Nigerian Youth in Secondary Schools-

 The Bible Society has put together Secondary Schools Bible Competition which starts from the grassroots in all the States of the Nation. Participants will be drawn from secondary schools in Nigeria in the three stages of the competition. The stages are listed below-

 Area level- This is the intra- State level of the competition where Secondary Schools compete at State level. This competition will be conducted by the BSN Area officers. This event holds in September every year. For this  year, the date is September 17, 2022.

Zonal Level- The winners in each State will meet at the BSN Zonal level and the winner at this level will qualify for the national competition. This competition will be conducted by the BSN Zonal officers. This event holds  in October every year. It will take place in October 8, 2022.

National Level- The Zonal winners will converge in Lagos State for the National competition for secondary schools students. This event holds annually in November. The final has been scheduled for November 4, 2022.

HOW IT RUNS: The competition is in oral format. Participants are given specific books of the Bible to study and they will be examined based on the books studied. The books to be studied this year is Jeremiah and John. The winners from each Zone will compete among themselves at the national level in Lagos State. Also, each level of the competition comes with an interactive section, motivational speech geared towards life transformation.

 Testimony- Over a thousand young people from more than 200 schools (more than 25,000 students reached) participate from State level every year thereby having the opportunity to interact with the word of God and have their lives transformed by the virtues drawn from the Bible.

Your financial and moral support will make this programme a huge success and we will be able to reach more young people.
