The U.S. Embassy in Abuja openly invites all interested adult Nigerians to compete in its “Strength in Diversity” video contest. This contest offers Nigerians the chance to creatively express pride in the country’s immense diversity and express their desire for national unity. Ambassador W. Stuart Symington, who opened the competition on September 6, 2017, said that despite the focus on the issues that seem to divide, there needs to be greater attention placed on Nigerians’ desire for peace and unity as well as the pride that Nigerians have in their cultural diversity.
Entrants are required to create an original video of no longer than three minutes in duration, upload it to YouTube, and complete the contest form.
The video has to be creative, original, should have a message emphasizing the strength to be found in diversity, with a clear focus on Nigeria.
