Pietermaritzburg - The annual Museums Passport Competition, a collaborative effort between the KwaZulu-Natal Museum, the Old Prison and Msunduzi Museum, runs from February 8 to May 31.

Museums provide a unique interactive experience of getting up close to things we usually only see in books and newspapers or on television.

The aim of the competition is to create awareness and exposure, and draw more visitors to these museums.

The competition is targeted to primary and high schools and is not restricted to geographic location.

There are three cash prizes up for grabs, valued at R25 000, R15 000 and R10 000.

In order to qualify for these prizes schools must visit all three participating museums before the end of May, and after a tour of each Museum they must stamp their “passport”.

The number of entries each school gets into the draw for a prize is dependent on the number of pupils in the group (50 pupils equal one entry, 100 pupils qualifies two entries, 150 pupils allow for three entries, etc.). The group must contain a minimum of 15 pupils.

All schools are invited to attend the launch event on February 5 at 2.30 pm at the Msunduzi Museum in Langalibalele Street.

At the launch the schools will receive their entry packs and all the information needed about the competition, and schools will also get to meet the representatives from each institution.
