Call For Submissions | Anthology Of Little Things & Spaces Of Minna | Hilltop Creative Arts Foundation

The Hilltop Creative Arts Foundation, Minna, Niger State, Nigeria, passionate about documenting Minna city in a book form to give the young people a feel of her past calls for submission of essays about Minna, the Niger State Capital.

Custodians of the teenagers by way of offering guides and counsels, by way of programmatically nurturing the young minds towards achieving their dreams, by way of giving formal teaching in schools and other places of learning, by way of providing the incentives, the facilities, and the conducive environment for the imparting and acquisition of knowledge, formal and informal. In talking to the teenagers, I am also talking to their parents, to their teachers, to officials of education ministry, and to politicians who must take an interest in the growth and development of the tender minds.             Talking about teenagers is talking about the future. It is precisely the idea of the future that occupied my mind as I thought of writing this address. It is indeed the r
