About epe innovation challenge
The Epe Innovation Challenge for Senior Secondary Schools aims to foster creativity and innovation amongst secondary students in Epe. The Challenge seeks to incorporate a project/problem-based learning model to engage Epe students in solving real-world challenges both within their locality and in the global landscape, thereby fostering community and global development.
This year’s focus is Food Security.
Student-teams provide technology-enabled solutions that solve the challenge of FOOD SECURITY under the following thematic areas:
◉ Food Production
◉ New Recipes for Medicinal and Nutritional Foods
◉ Food Preservation
◉ Technology that Improves the Experience of Food Consumption
The students representing their schools will be required to create teams of three students together with a teacher-mentor to help them fine-tune their ideas and innovation, which will then be pitched before judges in succeeding stages of the Challenge until the selected finalists pitch at the Grand Finale.
All Senior Secondary Schools in the 3 LCDAs in the Epe community including both Private and Public secondary schools are eligible to participate in this Innovation Challenge.
Interested schools are to register their intent with the thematic area of interest online through a link that would be provided in the invitation sent to them.

Of all the schools that register their intent, 8 schools will make it to the Grand Finale.
