The fourth season of the maths competition show, featuring 108 secondary school students, is now underway and will last for 13 weeks.
Cowbell, the company behind the show, has announced that the student who secures first place will receive N2m and an all-expenses-paid trip abroad. Second and third place will receive N1.5m and N1m respectively. Teachers of the winning students will also be given N500,000, N400,000 and N300,000 for first, second and third place, respectively.
