These categories reflected the influence of other sectors and their roles in education.
The PNEA 2017
According to Debo Olowu (the Project Director), this year PNEA, tagged “Re-Invent”, have been divided into two major categories which are the academic categories and the non-academic categories. The dynamic nature of the curriculum of the primary and secondary education necessitated the need to have categories for British and American schools. Also across Lagos states schools will receive awards of best in each local government area. Categories for university have been separated into; privately and government owned.
Battle of Brains Competition
