Destiny Scribes Writing Competition

This global writing competition is the brainchild of our CEO, Miss Peace Areogun, an avid reader and writer herself, and a passionate advocate for the girl child. This competition is one of the few Christ-centered writing competitions for Christian teenagers under the age 18.

The aim of this competition is to identify, celebrate and encourage the creativity of pre-teen and teenage Christians. This comes with opportunities to publish their creative work on our website and other amazing prizes. Through this, we get christian youths to have their voices heard and also share their experience growing up as Christians.
