The Sterling Bank Mathematics competition, sponsored by Sterling Bank Plc in collaboration with Caleb International Schools, came to a climax last weekend with the presentation of various cash awards totalling N3.65 million to the top 51 pupils.

The keenly contested competition which initially produced ties for the first position, prompting a tie breaker test, saw seven pupils achieving the same score.

At the award ceremony, three pupils, Ogunsanwo Temilade Ayomikun, Ojo Opemiposi Esther and Ebiabkpo Abeokuta, who came first, second and third, went home with cash prizes of N500,000, N300,000 and N200,000 respectively. They also got various branded gift items from Sterling Bank Plc.

Commending the performance of the pupils, Sterling Bank’s executive director and chief finance officer, Mr Abubakar Suleiman, stated that the keen competition among participants was an evidence that all was not lost in the country’s education sector.

He assured that the bank will be willing to partner with any institution with credible initiatives to promote education in the country and commended the management of Caleb Schools for supporting the discovery of talents, especially in the area of mathematics, often considered a major challenge to students and pupils.

“These children have performed exceptionally well to the admiration of all. Sterling Bank is pleased to be associated with this project and their success story. As an institution that is committed to enriching lives in all aspects, we will continue to partner institutions that can add value to sustain this trend,” he stated.
