Do you want to win R70 000 for your child’s education?

2017-08-30 06:01

COLGATE has announced the launch of its scholarship campaign in South Africa, whereby 10 pupils stand a chance to have R10 000 paid towards their school tuition for seven years.

Essentially, each child will receive
R70 000 over a seven-year period.

In a country where the education system is frequently under scrutiny due to lack of resources and infrastructure, many schools are not equipped to provide children with quality education. Furthermore, school fees are continually rising and the economy is not growing and South Africans are feeling the pinch.

Therefore, by giving children an opportunity to go to a better resourced school, their chances of achieving greater things in life are significantly increased.

Colgate South Africa has been committed to education for 23 years through its Bright Smiles, Bright Futures (BSBF) initiative. Over the years, BSBF has reached more than 10 million school children across South Africa with oral health education, thereby instilling a habit of brushing teeth from a young age. Through the scholarship competition, Colgate can contribute to the community and help in the development of potential future leaders of this country.

The competition is being run on USSD. To enter, dial *120*2676# and follow the prompts.

Competition entries opened on July 24 and close on September 30.

Entries are pouring in and the first two winners were announced on August 14. They are Cadence Naidoo (7), from Strand, Cape Town and Sbulelo Ntloko (9) from Benoni, Gauteng.

One winner is drawn weekly and will be announced via Facebook and selected print media.

In addition, Colgate will select winner stories to be filmed and broadcast on television, and shared on social media.
