Academic Quests

Owlypia is an exciting international competition for students. Owlypia aims to inspire intellectual curiosity in every young mind and has a central theme each year. Owlypia was founded in 2017 by Perceptum Education, a certified Social Enterprise based in London, UK.

Owlypia aims to provide young individuals a platform to grow, develop, and express themselves fully. It fosters an environment where curious minds can expand their knowledge and share ideas effectively.

Owlypia has five subjects; Social Sciences, Art & Design, Literature & Culture, Science & Technology and Economics & Business. Young intellectuals are expected to select their favorite subject and focus on it. The study resources contain several films and videos, alongside a range of books and articles. Some thought-provoking questions provided with each subject should be used to guide one’s research. By studying the content of their favorite subject area, each young intellectual will best be able to prepare themselves for the online competition. Please visit the website for details related to the content of each subject category.

If you enjoy thinking, writing and talking in a social and academically stimulating environment then this is the challenge for you!

Owlypia received the Global Inclusion Award 2024 from IFIP in partnership with UNESCO.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in collaboration with The International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) has launched a Global Inclusion Award.

This award extends beyond merely single category champion. Instead, it aims to inspire and advocate for exemplary practices, and promoting them globally. This enables them to grasp effective methods for achieving inclusion and advancing this common global aspiration.

Owlypia winning this award means that it is carrying out outstanding practices, and we should support this competition by participating in it.
