The initiative began in 1998 as Cowbell National Secondary School Mathematics Competition (NASSMAC) when it was a written examination without a TV show.
Since 1998, the Cowbell brand has been involved in promoting the study of mathematics in secondary schools across Nigeria. In the process, it has helped millions of students develop interest in and gain a better understanding of the subject. The project is designed to identify, recognize and reward excellence in the study of mathematics. The program is deployed in public and private schools. It serves students between the ages of eight and eighteen.
In 2015, Promasidor Nigeria (PNG) became a sponsor of Cowbellpedia. Their sponsorship made the program more robust. In the same year, the initiative took a new dimension when it was split into two stages. The Stage One is the Qualifying Examination (written exam in designated centres across the country) and the Stage two is the TV quiz competition.
Since 2016, Cowbell-Our Milk has decided to bring all its mathematics intervention activities under one umbrella, Cowbellpedia. The top prize was increased to 2 million Nigerian Naira in 2018 so as to celebrate the 20 years anniversary of the Mathematics competition initiative.
Cowbellpedia is an annual mathematics intervention for young students in Nigeria with many touch points. It is approved by the Federal Ministry of Education and endorsed by National Examination Council (NECO), the National Examination body for secondary schools in Nigeria.
After schools must have duly completed their registration on www.cowbellpedia.ng, all the eligible students are expected to write a national qualifying examination, administered by NECO, at designated centers closest to them. The results are released online every 1 June, to commemorate World Milk Day.
From the students that write the examinations annually, the best 108 (54 junior and 54 senior students) converge in Lagos along with their mathematics teachers for the ultimate prize/bragging rights of the Best Mathematics Student of the year – The Cowbellpedia Future Inventor.
The Managing Director of the Promasidor maker of the Cowbell Our Milk and also founder of the Cowbellpedia, Mr. Anders Einarsson has announced an increase in the prize money for the 2018 Cowbellpedia Secondary School Mathematics TV Quiz Show for both students and teachers.
