I wish to take this opportunity to say a few words about the PSC’s (Penang Science Council) logo and mascot competition. Spearheaded by Motorola and Emanec.com, this competition is open to all. The tagline for this competition is “Inspiring Innovation” which will be the focus of the logo and mascot creation.
A total of RM5,000 has been set aside for this competition. This prize money is sponsored by Mini Circuits Sdn. Bhd, anonymous donor and the Penang state government. The winning entry will win a prize money of RM 3000 and 2 special prizes of RM 1000 each will be given to other selected winners. Interested parties can submit their entries to [email protected] as well as hand drawn submissions to BizWise Consult, 1-3-21, Krystal Point Corporate Park, 11900 Bayan Lepas, Penang. This competition will start from today and ends by midnight 7th June 2010. More details such as rules and regulations can be obtained from www.bizwiseconsult.com under the folder PSC Logo Competition.
The winner of this competition is to be decided by a panel of judges comprising of the key task force leaders of the PSC. The winning entry will be chosen based on creativity and relevancy to the objectives of the Penang Science Council. Here, I wish to encourage more participants for this competition and the winner entry will have the logo and mascot used for all PSC activities and events.
Once again, the vision of the PSC is to make Penang into the center of excellence for science and technology. With its long standing history in the manufacturing industry, this council will play a critical role in addressing the critical issue of human resource where the interest in science and technology has tapered off over the years.
Led by the key industry players with minimal intervention from the state government, the PSC hopes to drive more interest amongst the young in the areas of science and technology. I wish to thank the Mini Circuit for the sponsorship, Emanec.com and Motorola for turning around the rules and regulations and Bizwise Consult for helping out with the logistics event. Once again, I look forward to making the announcement of the winner soon.
