Vodafone launches writing competition for kids
Accra, Sept. 28, GNA – Vodafone Ghana in partnership with Samsung on Saturday launched a three-month writing competition for children below the age of 15 aimed at encouraging creativity and thoughtful spending.
Encouraging children to be thoughtful in their spending is essential in times of austerity measures and also help groom them into responsible adulthood.
Mrs Gifty Bingley, Senior Corporate Communication Manager at Vodafone said at the launch that children would write on what they could do with one Ghana cedi, and all entries assessed based on creativity, composition and grammar, clarity, originality and realistic ideas.
She added that the entries would have to include any used Vodafone top up card and could be dropped off at any Vodafone retail shop nationwide or mailed to the one Team at Vodafone.
Mrs Bingley said children whose writing proved to be the most creative and realistic, would receive Samsung Galaxy tablets in every two weeks with the ultimate winners receiving a full year scholarship in the grand finale.
She explained that entries from the bi-weekly winners would be examined again to pick the top three winners who would receive a full scholarship each for the grand finale.
Vodafone and Samsung will be giving away 50 fully connected tablets.
‘At Vodafone we take pride in being innovative and creative and the One Ghana product is one such innovation, which redefines the market and sets the pace for others to follow,’ said Mrs Bingley.
Vodafone ‘One Ghana’ product took the Ghanaian by storm in 2001 and at the recent CIMG awards ‘One Ghana’ was singled out and acknowledged for its uniqueness.
Earlier this month Vodafone launched the new and improved offer with the addition of 100 free SMS, five minutes talk time on other networks and 20 megabytes of data to the original offer of 100 minutes for one Ghana Cedi.
