A new competition record has been set in the history of Cowbellpedia Secondary Schools Mathematics Television Quiz Show, sponsored by Cowbell Milk, the foremost brand from Promasidor Nigeria Limited.

As against the record set by 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, 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.

The feat by the duo sent four of their colleagues out of the Quiz Show. These include Gospel Omosebi of Bibo Oluwa Academy, Ilesha, Osun State; Umar Muhammad of Nigerian Tulip International College, Damaturu, Yobe State; and Shekinah Odola of Evangel Group of Schools, Gombe, Gombe State.

Faith, the only female semi-finalist in Group F, described her experience in the Cowbellpedia Secondary Schools Mathematics Television Quiz Show 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, Adebisi Ademola of Reality High School, Ilesha, Osun State and Enoch Adelekan from The Ambassadors College, Ota Ogun State, progressed to semi-finals.

The four contestants who could not make it beyond the first and second rounds in this group are: Joshua Umoh of Monef High School, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State; Akachukwu Onyuike of Nigerian Tulip International College, Abuja; James Gabriel of Deeper Life High School, Calabar, Cross River State; and Mairo Musa-Machima of El-Kanemi College, Maiduguri, Borno State.


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.

The teachers of the top prize winners will be awarded N500,000, while those of the first and second runners-up will receive N400,000 and N300,000 respectively.

Also, each of the winning schools will be presented with Mathematics textbooks, desktop computers and printers.
