A Nationwide Children's Storybook Writing Competition On Health
Studies show that the single best determinant of health is educational attainment. Building a healthier Philippines begins with our children and their innate capacities to build better worlds in their minds. Let us foster this by helping them learn to read.
The MU SIGMA PHI SORORITY of the UP
is now calling for entries for the
1st Gawad Panitikang Pangkalusugan – a nationwide children’s storybook writing competition on health.
The contest is open to all Filipino residents aged 18 years old and above, and challenges participants to break away from the clinical, didactic presentation of health issues and create it into a form that is both enjoyable and educational for a young audience aged 5-10 years old.
Entries must creatively tackle the theme: “Tabi-tabi po” – Exploring Philippine Health Myths.
Winners will receive Php 25,000 in cash, a medal, and a chance to be published as a full-color picture in a 7-volume storybook series. Published books will be donated to the AHON Foundation and other beneficiaries.
Deadline of entries is on May 15, 2010.
