The Deeper Life High School has emerged the overall winner (Gold medal) of the just concluded Beautiful Ones Are Born (BOAB) 2021 Competition.
The school was represented by the following students of Kaduna campus: David Ezekiel and Onu Goodnews (for Mathematics), Aimanosa Izagaegbe and Kwasu Shalom (for Sciences) while Ajonye Happiness and Ebunoluwa Dare contested in the debate and spelling bee category.
This qualified them for the Ivy League University full scholarship awards and the other four students, one million naira (N1,000,000.) yearly scholarships in support of their education.
Also, being the overall best school, Deeper Life High School Kaduna campus was awarded a sum of N10million for school facility and structural development.
The grand finale for the keenly contested multi-stage academic competition for public and private secondary schools in Nigeria was held at the University of Lagos on September 30, 2021.
The competition is a once in a lifetime experience for schools represented by their students to compete in STEM (Physics, Chemistry, Biology & Mathematics), Debate and a Spelling Bee competition.
Hundreds of schools (both public/government and private) across the 36 states and FCT registered and participated in the competition.
On the Award day, which was October 1, 2021, the chairman of the Platform Capital, Dr. Akintoye Akindele, in his opening address after congratulating all the schools and students that made it to the grand finale, narrated how he came up with the idea of the BOAB competition on the Children’s Day (May 27, 2021).
He said that all students that made it to the finals are qualified for one million naira education scholarship yearly for the rest of their studies to PhD level. The best student in each category (i.e. Mathematics, Sciences, Debate and Spelling Bee) will have full scholarship to any of the Ivy League Universities in the United States, he said.
He tagged this particular Award as ‘Oluwatoyin Ogundipe Award’ which is the name of the Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos who graced the occasion.

  1. Congratulations to the team andd the school. Please how do I register my student for this year BOAB and when is registration commencing?

  2. The students that participated for the 2021 BOAB competition and won are yet to receive the said scholarship of 1 million naira promised to them and this is June 2022. With this I don’t think that the competition is reliable because some of these kids are already in university with no contribution from boab management.
