The Bible Society of Nigeria (BSN) will on November 18 hold the 19th edition of its annual national Secondary School Bible quiz.
This is contained in a statement signed by Mr Benjamin Mordi, Manager, Media & Public Relations, BSN, made available to newsmen in Lagos.
The statement said that the quiz, designed to inculcate godly values and Christian virtues in the student, would take place at Igbobi College, Yaba, Lagos.
It added that eight participating schools from the eight zones of the BSN across the country would present two representatives each.
“The contestants will answer questions drawn from the books of Jeremiah and John.
“The overall winner of the competition will receive a trophy and a cash prize, while the other participants will go home with consolation prizes.
“The Secondary School Bible quiz is one of the many programmes organised by the BSN in fulfillment of its mission to make the Holy Bible available to Nigerians and help them interact with the Word of God,” it said.
NAN reports that the BSN is a not-for-profit interdenominational Christian organisation that translates the Bible into Nigerian languages, publishes, distributes the scriptures, and raises funds for Bible work.
