Close to 70,000 students from 247 schools signed up for the Best School Newspaper Awards 2004 in anticipation of producing an exciting school newspaper and winning pizza rewards. 

One reason for the increase in numbers from last year could be attributed to the delicious pizzas and cash prizes up for grabs, thanks to Star-NiE's partner Pizza Hut. This year, students from three classes per category per school will win a RM10 Pizza Hut voucher each.  

At national level judging, the champion school for each category wins a trophy, RM1,000 cash and a RM500 Pizza Hut voucher. In addition, it will also get 1,000 copies of its winning entry printed for school circulation.  

The second prize winner receives RM750 cash and a RM300 Pizza Hut voucher while the third prize winner will get RM500 cash and a RM200 Pizza Hut voucher. 

There will also be five individual awards for Best News Article, Best Feature Article, Best Photograph, Best Pizza Hut Advertisement and Best Comic Strip. The winners will receive a RM100 Pizza Hut voucher each. 

Of the 247 schools which registered, more than 70 (about one third) are primary schools, indicating a growing interest in English among pupils. Last year, a commendable figure of 50 primary schools took part. 

About 34 secondary schools registered for the lower secondary category while 40 schools registered for the upper secondary level. A total of 95 schools entered for both categories. 

Once again, Selangor topped the states in the number of schools with 81, followed by the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur with 36. 

Schools which have faxed or sent in their registration forms but their names are not listed below should call Ms Kiran at 03-79671298.
