As part of activities leading to its World Milk Day celebration, about 270,000 children spread across 273 public and private schools in Lagos sampled tasty Peak Choco milk, courtesy FrieslandCampina WAMCO.

It was a precursor to the “Vision Nigeria Art Challenge” finale that was hosted on June 1, 2015 with 10 creative works jostling for prizes out of 65 schools that took part in the early stages of the contest. The children showcased their vision of Nigeria by using Peak milk cans, pouches and sachets to create a vision of the Nigeria they wish to live in.

Held in the Indoor Sports Hall, University of Lagos, primary and secondary school representatives presented their art projects to a team of judges who walked round all 10 displays. They were: Dr Sheyi Kehnny and Mr. Quadri (University of Lagos); Mr. Egiolamhen Pius (Yaba College of Technology); Mr. Sutton Semasa Bamidele and Mrs Ibiyemi Jegede (Lagos State Ministry of Education); Mr. Biodun Oni (Lagos State Ministry of Education; Mr.  Chuks Ogene (New Media Artist, Art Sunestis); and Mr. Anifowoshe Olabisi (Grange Private School).

At the end of the competition, Headstart Private School, Deby Niky Nursery/Primary School and Wellspring College won the first, second and third positions, respectively with each school getting a grand renovation of their art studio to the tune of N250,000 (first), N150,000 (second) and N100,000 (third).

“This is meant to provide an enabling environment for children and teachers to further develop their artistic and creative skills. Also, all 65 participating schools will receive N50,000 each for makeover of their art studio” said Mrs. Ore Famurewa, Corporate Affairs Director, FrieslandCampina WAMCO.

The 10 art teachers who supported their school representatives to bring to live their artistic inspirations each received Samsung Galaxy tabs for their commitment in helping the children nurture their aspiration.

“The whole idea is to showcase the commitment of our Peak brand to constantly inspire the pursuit of excellence in our daily lives and further fuel dreams. This is why our World Milk Day event is themed ‘Celebrating 60 years of feeding future aspirations’ and we are encouraged by how well all the schools, pupils, students and teachers have participated and enjoyed this celebration” Famurewa concluded.

The iconic Peak brand as part of its celebration of 60 years of nourishing Nigeria also sponsored the Children’s Day celebration at LTV8, NTA and MM2 with over 7,000 kids on May 27. Consumers can join the Peak 60th celebration on facebook.com/Peakmilk and youtube.com/PeakMilkNG.

FrieslandCampina WAMCO, makers of the Peak, Three Crowns and Friso milk brands continues to maintain its No. 1 position as Nigeria’s leading milk manufacturing company by investing in its people, capacity expansion projects and by being an excellent corporate citizen.
