PZ CUSSON CHEMISTRY CHALLENGE FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLSPZ Cussons Chemistry Challenge was initiated in 2013 by the PZ Cussons Foundation to stimulate, inspire and reward the study of science and chemistry in particular among senior Secondary school students.

The 2014 edition opens for participation on the 30th of November 2014

The late Margaret Thatcher, the first and only female prime minister of Britain and the late President Umaru Musa Yaradua were Chemists.

Chemistry is a dynamic and interesting discipline that cuts across all areas of human lives. It is the central science that is deeply ingrained in health care, engineering, business, management, government, marketing, product development, environmental management and even law!

In view of this central and important role, PZ Cussons is promoting the study of chemistry through open competition amongst Nigerian secondary schools.

The primary objective of the competition is to stimulate and inspire the learning of Chemistry amongst students and raise their IQ. It is to also demonstrate the relevance and role of chemistry in our society.

The Champion will be crowned along with his/her teacher, parents and school in a special award ceremony with principal officers from Premier and other relevant stakeholders.

The competition shall be in three stages;

  • First Stage,
  • Second Stage and
  • The Main Challenge.

The First stage shall be a written quiz and all screened candidates shall participate at this stage.
The Second stage shall also be a written quiz and only the best 100 from the first stage shall qualify for the stage.
The Final stage which is the Main Challenge shall be the battle of the guns. Only the best four from the Second stage shall qualify for the Finals.

Only those who understand Chemistry as a discipline and how it relates to the real world will stand a chance to be crowned the 2014 Champion. Who would that be?
