Student sets new record in Cowbellpedia Maths competition

 

A female student has erased the former records of the educational competition Cowbellpedia Secondary Schools Mathematics Television Quiz Show, sponsored by Cowbell Milk, the foremost brand from Promasidor Nigeria Limited.

The former record was set by a male, Master Emmanuel Mebude, a student of Ogunlade Memorial Secondary School, Surulere, Lagos, who answered 17 questions in the 60 Seconds of Fame segment of the competition in 2017.

This time around, Miss Faith Odunsi of The Ambassadors College, Ota Ogun State, solved 19 Mathematics questions in that segment to advance to the semi-finals of this year’s edition in the junior category Group F.

She was joined in the semi-finals by Ifeanyi Anyoku of the Graceland International School, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

Faith, the only female semi-finalist in Group F, described her experience in the Cowbellpedia competition as fantastic and interesting. “I pray to sustain the momentum and win. I will feel very great to be crowned a champion,” she said.

Ifeanyi, who was thrilled to have crossed the hurdle, thanked his teachers for believing in him and promised to up the ante as the competition progresses.

In the senior category, Master Adebisi Ademola of Reality High School, Ilesha, Osun State and Master Enoch Adelekan from The Ambassadors College, Ota Ogun State, progressed to semi-finals.

A highly-spirited Adebisi promised to channel all his energy and capacity to win the ultimate prize. “I feel excited scaling this hurdle. But my ultimate ambition is to win and become the 2018 Cowbellpedia champion,” he said.
