Guaranty Trust Bank (GTBank), has unveiled the SKS Young Inventor Competition which is expected to run between October 27th and November 30th. The SKS Young Inventor Competition is an amazing journey to find the next generation of inventors and forward thinking citizens, committed to the growth of the country. The bank embarked on this initiative in order to help children give expression to their imagination through invention.
The National Competition is powered by GTBank Smart Kids Save account, as part of a series of activities lined up to commemorate the 10th year anniversary of the SKS product and is open to all SKS customers aged between 4–17 years old.
According to a representative from the Bank, we are excited about the “SKS Young Inventor” competition because it is not just about organizing a campaign for children to win gift items, but about inspiring young minds to aspire for the greatest heights in everything they do and promoting our core values of excellence, innovation and service. These values make us unique and inform our identity as a Proudly African and Truly International Bank.
