ASIDE from sourcing out information on education, visitors to the Star Education Fair 2010 will be pleased to note that they also stand to win attractive prizes.

The popular Award ‘N’ Win contest makes a comeback at the fair with prizes ranging from holiday stays to museum tours.

Health and wellness company Basic Health and Beauty has donated Salus Calcium Magnesium and Floradix Iron supplements as prizes.

“It has been proven that students’ nutritional intake affects their academic ability,” said the company’s nutritionist Joanne Chee.

“This is our way of raising awareness among students about the link between being healthy and performing well in their studies,” she said after presenting the products together with the company’s sales executive Joyce Chang to Star Publications (M) Bhd special features writer Cindy Yeoh.

Meanwhile, Swiss Garden International Hotels, Resorts and Inns have come on board as sponsors for the second time.

“This year, we are sponsoring RM6,000 worth of accommodation vouchers at our Damai Laut, Kuantan and Kuala Lumpur properties,” said the group’s corporate marketing and communications manager Linda Evelyn Wong.

She added that the company believed that the fair was an important platform for Malaysians to seek out their educational options.

“We’ve always supported education-related endeavours, and the fair is a good way of ensuring that we strengthen the pool of hoteliers for the industry.”

Wong was speaking at the fair’ recent prize sponsorship presentation at Menara Star, Petaling Jaya. Also present at the ceremony was Silverbird Group Berhad’s Stanson Marketing consumer food division brand manager Michele Goh.

Silverbird, the company responsible for High 5 bread, has sponsored 250 tickets to its High 5 Bread Town in Shah Alam, Selangor.

“The High 5 Bread Town is a bread museum, where visitors are able to learn about the history of bread in a fun and interactive way,” explained Goh.

“Aside from a tour detailing how bread has evolved from Egyptian times to the present day, you can also experience the way bread is made at our factory. Since opening in 2005, we’ve had about 50,000 visitors a year - and the tour is especially a hit with children.” - By PRIYA KULASAGARAN
