Display Board Committee

“If there was something the COVID-19 outbreak taught me, it was that most communities in my country Nigeria suffer from cases of misinformation or sometimes, complete lack of information or maybe it was just ignorance. But the fact still remained that important things were going completely unnoticed and unheard of. The Display Board Committee project I started in my school, City of Knowledge Academy, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, Nigeria is a project running to solve this same problem in such a very small community. After all, the line of attack is always to dream big but start small. The project is managed by several students, who make up the committee and make use of display boards around the school to publicize important announcements, artistic talents and student journalism using resources that are already available. Any chance to impart information in the community is always the path to take for the team.
