Creating a better Mzansi through sport and development
This is the exciting launch (not lunch) of a NEW competition that will take place right here on www.youthzones.co.za
The objective is to get young people to share their thoughts and feelings through blogs. You can also write a poem, song or story, but the main idea is to express yourself in ANY way. Even adding a picture.
The competition will not focus on the normal Youthzones topics of sport, IT, life-skills and enterprise, but it will have to be about a specific topic. You can choose which topic you want to write on. To enter, the #topic has to be in the title of your blog and, importantly you have to add it as a 'tag', just enter the topic in the block called Tags:
Prizes will be given EVERY week and includes over R100 000 of prizes, ranging from footballs and phones to airtime.
Winners will be notified through this website.
So, here are our topics until February: (in no particular order)
Hustle for Cash, entrepreneurship in the township #hustle
HIV Aids as part of our daily lives #hiv
Gay and Lesbian Views in My Community #lgbt
Leadership Success Stories #lead
Gender Issues: women face challenges and solutions #gender
Crime and corruption #crime
This competition is sponsored by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Views in blogs or comments do not represent their views and editorial administration is conducted by Youthzones in conjunction with AmaVerkykers.
Although we encourage healthy comments and debate, any personal insults or fighting will be removed and members blocked. This has to be a safe space where we discuss with sensitivity, maturity and respect.
