Awards lift dwindling reading culture Little Writers.

The issue of a dwindling reading culture among the youth came to the fore recently at the 2017 Little Writers Awards organised by ALFA Reading Society for Junior and Senior Secondary Schools in Lagos. The yearly event, held at Oriental Hotel, Lagos, was another bold effort by the society, a not-for-profit organisation committed to the promotion of reading culture and the attainment of sustainable educational development across Africa.

President of the society and Dean, Lagos Business School, Dr. Enase Okonedo, said the event, opened to junior and senior secondary schools in Lagos, was the high point of activities organised yearly to address the declining reading culture. Stressing that poverty has denied many students access to reading materials, she urged the youth to go back to reading to develop and broaden their minds for development.
