Kuala Lumpur: The skies above SK Taman Maluri were filled with colourful helium balloons to mark the launch of the Star-NiE and Pizza Hut Tale Spin 2014 storyboarding contest.
The annual NiE competition saw a participation of more than 164,000 students and 6,400 teachers the previous year.
Launching the contest on Monday, Pizza Hut Restaurants Sdn Bhd senior general manager Low Kang Moon said that the Tale Spin helped students learn English in a stimulating, dynamic and fun way.
“The contest also supports the Government’s call to help raise the level of spoken and written English in schools and that has been the focus ever since we began sponsoring for Star-NiE back in 1998,” he added.
This contest is open to primary school pupils in Years Three to Six and secondary school students nationwide.
Primary school contest templates are out today while secondary school templates will be out on April 30 in the Newspaper-in-Education pullout.
Students stand a chance to win from an array of attractive prizes, including RM150,000 worth of scholarships by Taylor’s University and all-expenses-paid trips to Hong Kong Disneyland courtesy of The Star and Pizza Hut.
The contest closes on June 30.
