Welcome to the first contest in the Steem Nigeria community.


After a long discussion with our country representative, @beautychicks, we concluded that one of the most effective way to encourage retention and rewards among our teaming Nigerians on steem , apart from the diary game, is to engage them in weekly contests. The idea of the contest is fueled by @steemitblog encouragement that communities on steem should work on encouraging more engagements among her members.

Thus, the purpose of this challenge is to encourage engagement, retention and rewards among Nigerians.

For this week, we are starting with The Story of My Life. Just a short story about an experience in your life. It could be something about what happened to you years back, bring back the memories.

You can go wild, no boundaries to what you can share. It could be pleasant or unpleasant experiences.


A total 20 steem in prizes is available for a start.
1st position receives 5 steem
2nd position receives 3 steem
3rd position receives 2 steem
4th position to 13th position receive 1 steem each

More rewards on the way, as the contest gets bigger every week. What are you waiting for? Nigerians, let’s write.


  1. The title of your entry must start with Steem Nigeria Contest: Story of My Life: Any other additional words.
  2. It must be 200 words minimum and 1000 words maximum.
  3. You must include the tag #steemnigeria in your first five tags, preferably the first.
  4. You must include a maximum of 4 pictures, no minimum.
  5. You must post your entry in the STEEM NIGERIA community.
