KUCHING, Feb 19: Kuching South City Council’s (MBKS) ‘Say No to Plastic Straw’ poster design competition is open to all Kuching primary school students.

MBKS councillor Yong Li Na said Primary 1 to 6 students from Kuching South, Kuching North, Padawan, and Kota Samarahan are welcomed to submit their designs starting Monday (Feb 21).

She said entry forms would be available for download on the MBKS official website, and participants won’t have to pay a fee.

“The poster has to be A4-sized, and participants are allowed to use colour pencils, watercolour or crayons for their poster designs.

“It will be a good activity for the kids seeing that primary school students will be on school holiday after two weeks,” she said during MBKS mayor Dato Wee Hong Seng’s Facebook live session today.

In terms of prizes, Yong said the first prize will win RM250, the second prize RM200, and the third prize RM150.

There will also be 50 consolation prizes with cash prizes of RM30 each. In addition, all winners will get a trophy and certificate.

The competition will last for one whole month and closes on March 21, 2022. Any languages including English, Malay, and Chinese, are allowed in the poster designs. — DayakDaily
