Bursaries up for grabs

2019-04-16 06:00

With the May general elections less than a month away, the Community Chest has launched an Election Bursary Competition for the “pre-election” age group to give them a chance to express their views on issues affecting the country, and what changes they would like to see in the future.

Bursaries worth R200 000 will be awarded to the winners.

“Given that the under 15 to under 18 age group is not yet eligible to vote, we wish to hear their thoughts and ideas on how they would run the country, with particular focus on leadership, social justice and current affairs,” says Lorenzo Davids, CEO of Community Chest.

Davids says education is one of their key focus areas and they see it as critical to the country’s future.

“It is the gateway to providing the means for an individual, families and communities to fulfil their human potential and practice active citizenship.

“We believe that everyone deserves the chance to be the best version of themselves they can possibly be and nothing should stand in their way. For each young learner to become an adult active citizen and fully participate in all our country has to offer, education is imperative,” says Davids.

“Life-long learning is key to developing our full potential and we would love to facilitate the journey at a tertiary level for three young learners with leadership skills.”

Interested learners are invited to make written submissions followed by video presentations that will be driven via social media platforms to ensure interaction and wider public engagement.

As part of the contest’s essay task, entrants are asked to critically examine the country’s current political landscape in terms of leadership, social justice and current affairs, and suggest the reasons behind the challenges faced as a country.

In addition to this, learners must outline how they would change the socio-economic conditions faced by many South Africans.

Entries for the competition close on Tuesday 30 April and the winners will be announced after the election results have been released.

The first prize is R100 000, second prize R60 000 and third prize R40 000. V For more information on the competition, visit the Community Chest website on www.comchest.org.za
