The deadline for the G.I.V.E. School Competition, being hosted by the Ministry of Labour and Social Partnership Relations, has now been extended to Friday, March 8.
Additionally, the Instagram challenge has been slightly adjusted, with students now required to post their entries to #givesuccess246.
The G.I.V.E. School Competition started on Monday, January 28, and targets primary and secondary school students.
G.I.V.E. is an acronym for Great Attitude, Initiative, Values and Excellence. The objectives of the Ministry’s G.I.V.E. Programme are to improve employer and employee attitudes in the public sector; and to promote standards of appropriate behaviour in the workplace.
The G.I.V.E. School Competition aims to capture the attention of students, while exposing them to the principles of the G.I.V.E Programme. It is also expected to provide a forum for schools to share their views on the programme, and present ideas on how it could be enhanced.
The theme for both the poster competition and the Instagram challenge is G.I.V.E Today: Success Tomorrow. Students of primary and secondary schools will be required to portray, in the form of a poster, what the subject means to them.
The Instagram challenge will require secondary students to create a video, no longer than 30 seconds, or use photos depicting the subject. Additionally, students will be required to post the videos/pictures.
To be eligible for the competition, entrants must be 8 to 11, 12 to 14, or 14 to16 years old.
Prizes will include laptop computers, tablets, gift vouchers for books and art supplies, and other G.I.V.E promotional items.
