PHILIPSBURG – The Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports announced that the deadline for the logo competition has been extended until December 21.
Last month the Ministry launched a logo competition for its ICT in Education project entitled iSTEP. iSTEP stands for “Inspiring our Students with Technology in Education Project” and aims to include youngsters proactively in the project, starting with a logo competition.
The competition is open to all 5th and 6th graders (Group 7 and 8) of all elementary schools and 1st and 2nd formers of all secondary schools on the Dutch side. The winning prize of the competition is an Apple IPad and to up the ante, the winning school also gets an ICT device as a prize.
The Ministry is urging the schools and parents to encourage students to participate in the competition as the logo will form a fundamental part of a pivotal project in the community. The project involves the implementation of ICT devices such as tablets, document cameras, scanners, interactive projectors, just to name a few, and signals the movement of the schools stepping into the digital age.
