A UNIQUE, positive and wholesome family words and sentences competition called Verbalize Goodness will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Badmin-ton Stadium in Cheras on June 19.
The competition is jointly organised by the National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN) and SportsUnite Sports Club.
The objective of the event, held for the first time in Malaysia, is to promote good family values, positive attitudes and a wholesome lifestyle.
The contest is open to 180 Malaysian families. Selection is based on the quality of a simple sentence that families need to complete in the entry form.
Each participating family must comprise any three immediate family members.
There is no age limit.
It is important to note that extended family members like uncles, aunts, cousins, nephews and nieces are not allowed to take part but are most welcome to give moral support.
The contest comes in four sections. Entry fee is RM20 per family to be paid during registration on event day.
The fee collected will be donated to Persatuan Penjagaan Kanak Kanak Cacat Klang Selangor, whose representative will be present to receive the contributions.
Attractive prizes in cash and kind awaits the top 10 families.
Online registration is encouraged via www.sportsunite.com.my or www.lppkn.gov.my. For details, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or contact 03-6201 7989.
