DUE to popular demand, Maxis Hotlink’s A Nationwide Student Community Service Competition has been extended to May 13.
Secondary school students who want to make a positive difference in their school and community now have more time to develop their project idea and submit their proposal.
The contest calls for ideas for projects that can benefit your community. The winning team gets RM10,000 to implement its project, and RM5,000 for itself.
All you have to do is to look around you and identify the issues and problems in your community that you can do something about.
Perhaps there is a group of children with learning disability who need special classes, or a neighbourhood playground needs refurbishing. What about doing something for senior citizens?
Once you have a goal to work towards, do your homework. Read, surf the net or talk to local non-profit organisations. Then get together with a few friends and start planning how to implement the project.
For details, check out the contest form below or visit www.hotlink.com.my.
Note: The Star and Maxis will conduct a workshop for students and teachers to provide tips on how to plan for a community project. Participation is free. Look out for more information in The Star.
