“Since the package was targeted mainly at the student community, we organised the Maestro competition to identify the most well-rounded student,” Fauzi told StarBiz during the final rounds of the competition in Kuala Lumpur last Friday. 

The TIMECel SMS X-Cite package Is designed to cater to student needs, especially and provides a number of services like SMS Chat, e-mail, SmartInfo, download of ringtones, logo downloads, picture message downloads, SMS address book, an SMS calendar, logo and picture message uploads, as well as daily horoscopes in both Chinese and English. 

The grand prize of RM5,000 cash was won by Muhammad Nazri Khairuddin while the first prize of a Modenas Kriss motorcycle was won by Phang Win Ming. Second prize went to Mohd Fadli Baharuddin, who won a personal computer while the third prize went to Sri Mohd Hasri who won a palmtop. 

“We strongly believe in harnessing the full potential of today’s younger generation. The contest challenges different skills from general knowledge to mastery of mind power,” Fauzi said.
