Friday is World Egg Day and it is celebrated internationally to raise awareness on the nutritional value of eggs and why people should always eat them.
As part of efforts to celebrate the International event, students of the Department of Mass Communication, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU) who were outstanding in Visual/Non Verbal Communication practical activities were given Eggs as prize for their achievements.
Well, it wasn’t just eggs. They were given eggs and coconut as prizes for their outstanding performance.
The award was given by massmediang, an online news platform which celebrates excellence in mass communication studies using agricultural products.
The students embarked on a competition to communicate meaningfully through costumes, makeup and communicative choreographic dance. Those who excelled were honoured on Tuesday, at the Francis Oladele stand on Igbariam campus of the University.
Though the World Egg Day is on Friday October 12, the celebration was marked a bit earlier to raise awareness before the actual date.
