Editor of BBC Hausa, Jimeh Saleh says: “The 2016 award attracted hundreds of entries from all over the world, so we are delighted to bring the award back again for the second year. Our aim is to give more women an opportunity to tell and share their stories.”  

Last year’s contest was worn by Aisha Muhammad Sabitu, a housewife in Katsina State.

There will be one winner and two runners up that will be decided by a panel of judges. A selection of the stories will be read on air and published on BBC Hausa’s digital platforms. The winners will receive a cash prize and plaque at a special awards night in Abuja in the last week of November 2017.
