I found this in The Star Online archives… Ms Sharon is the 1st from right.

Extra care

WORRIED that their posters might get damaged if they sent them via post, team The Pentagon decided to hand in their Campaign 4 Rewards (C4R) 2007 entry at Menara Star the day before the deadline on June 30.

Coming straight from school after their extra-curricular activities, three of the five upper-secondary team members from SMK Sri Sentosa, Kuala Lumpur, submitted their campaign portfolio and three posters to Star-NiE co-ordinator Sharon Ovinis.

Said team leader, Form Five student Low See Wai: “We have put a lot of hard work into the campaign and we didn’t want to risk the posters getting damaged.”

The five friends had initially wanted to compile a scrapbook as they had many ideas on the contest theme Visit Malaysia 2007.

However, they had to limit themselves as the contest rules stated that all entries had to be submitted on the original contest templates published by The Star.

“It was kind of hard to decide on our campaign topic as we had plenty of ideas. So, we finally decided to do a general campaign on visiting Malaysia,” said See Wai, adding that their three posters focused on Kuala Lumpur, Sarawak and food.

The team only took a week to complete their portfolio and posters, staying back after school to work on the campaign.

Although they are dreaming of the study trip to the University of Hull in the United Kingdom, they feel that their chances of winning the grand prize are slim.

Shared See Wai: “Well, we did our best, and it was a fun experience.”

The Pentagon’s entry was one of thousands that have come pouring into The Star over the past three weeks.

Organised by Star-NiE and Pizza Hut, the C4R 2007 contest required students to form teams of four to five and come up with a campaign to promote Malaysia to tourists.

Up for grabs are the grand prizes of a study trip to the University of Hull for the lower and upper secondary categories, and a trip to East Malaysia for the primary grand prize winner.

Six finalists – two from each category – will be chosen from all the entries.

They will be required to make an oral presentation in English on their campaign to a panel of judges, who will decide on the grand prize winner and the runner-up for each category.

The finalists will be announced next month.

To reward all the hard work that has gone into producing a campaign, Pizza Hut will also be giving every team that has sent in a complete entry pan pizza vouchers.

The list with the total number of regular and personal Pizza Hut vouchers for each school, along with the names of teachers-in-charge of C4R 2007 teams, will be published in StarEducation at the end of July.
