The Challenge - DreamOval Foundation

The Bright Minds Challenge is a creative competition for children between the ages of 8 to 19 years with an objective to enhance their knowledge on COVID-19 and its effect on our society.

We believe learning must continue at home and within this period it can be fun and interesting and that’s exactly what we seek to achieve with this challenge. Our objectives are to create a platform for young people to continue learning while having fun, inspire creativity amongst young children and their peers, create mass education on COVID 19 and enhance the learning skills of young children while at home.
