The competition was endorsed by the Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture (M.E.S.C.) as they see this as a way to help with the development of a child’s cognitive thinking and the ability to express oneself openly to create something from the use of their imagination, original ideas or personal experiences.

“We place value in our children’s creativity whether through their writing or through creative art. We aim to nurture their emotional health and to place value on their ideas thus raising their self-esteem for we believe that “Goodness Feeds Greatness.”
