THE annual Museums Passport Competition was launched at the Msunduzi Tourism Hub last Friday.

The competition is a collaborative marketing effort between three local institutions — Msunduzi Pietermaritzburg Tourism, uMsunduzi Museum and The Old Prison.

According to Zama Nxasana of PMB Tourism, the aim of the competition is to raise awareness on these institutions as curriculum enrichment centres. “We’d like to encourage all educators to bring pupils to these institutions because not only it is educational, but the prizes that they stand a chance to win will also assist with the needs of the schools, especially those that are underprivileged,” said Nxasana.

Participating schools will stand a chance to win R25 000. The top two schools that bring the most pupils to the three institutions stand a better chance of winning the cash prize. There will also be a lucky draw for total prize of R30 000 to three schools that participate in the competition.

RULES OF THE COMPETITION:

• The competition will run from February 10 to September 30, 2020.

• The passport must be stamped at all three participating institutions after a tour of each institution and all contact details must be provided on the card. Incomplete passports will automatically disqualify.

• The competition will have two categories: the first categories will depend on the most number of pupils entering the competition, and the second category will be a lucky draw.

• No late entries will be accepted as the box will be removed from site after 2 pm on the September 30.

• The judge’s decision will be final and no correspondences will be entered into.

• The competition is neither a project nor a school assignment and is open to pupils from grades RR to 12.
