This year’s essay contest themed “The North Korean Nuclear Conundrum: Is a Peaceful Resolution Possible?”, was aimed at analysing the rising conflict tensions in the Korean Peninsula as well as exploring peaceful strategies and solutions. The contest open to undergraduate and graduate students from any country who are currently enrolled in a college or university had a cash prize reward of $200 and $100 to the second and third winners respectively.

In the words of Kenneth Okpomo:

This contest, in my candid opinion, required  a good grasp of global affairs and extraordinary analytical skills to win.

I appreciate Daisy Alliance for the opportunity and particularly, Dr. Gregory Hall, Executive Director of Daisy Alliance and Associate Professor at the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce at the University of Kentucky. 

I also encourage other Nigerian students to similarly strive for literary excellence.”

According to Dr. Gregory Hall in the award letter:

Dear Mr. Okpomo, congratulations!

On behalf of my colleagues at Daisy Alliance, I am pleased to inform you that we have reviewed your submission to our essay contest and have granted it distinction.

You will be receiving in short order a $300 award.

We found your paper to be well organised, and thoughtfully written. You did a fine job addressing the various aspects of this complex problem.”
