About Owlypia - The Intellectuals' Challenge

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!
