Annual Xfire Nairaland Undergraduate Quiz Competition (scholarship)- 3rd Edition by Richiez(m): 8:25am On Jan 10


Hello everyone,

Following the highly successful outcome of the 2nd edition of the Xfire Nairaland Undergraduate Quiz Competition held last year, It is a great pleasure to welcome you all to the 3rd edition of this competition.


The 2nd edition was highly competitive with about 473 screened applicants partaking in the online test. This shows an increase of about 58% in the number of participants as against the number recorded in the maiden edition (300).

The eventual winner, Alphamaximus, a 500 level Petroleum and Gas Engineering student of UNILAG received a total cash prize of N100, 000. Having scaled through all the hurdles and being a recipient of two other scholarships, he no doubt was the worthy winner.

The 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th placed winners also received various cash prizes while the 6th to 15th placed winners received N1, 000 recharge cards each.

Thanks to the chief sponsor and originator of this competition
xfire who made a total cash commitment of N160,000 and our big sponsor Mayflowa who contributed N50,000. A big thanks also to Abike12 who came towards the tail end of the competition to support with N20,000. Due to her kind gesture, the 6th to 15th best got an additional N2,000 each.
