Antibiotic Resistance Competition
Date Of Event:
Thursday, June 1, 2017
The World Health Organization considers Antimicrobial Resistance to be one of the greatest threats to global health. There is a fear among experts that antibiotics will increasingly fail to treat illnesses that they once cured easily. How would the world look like in such a post-antibiotic situation? What are the ways people will do to live and cope with this situation?
The NUS Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health, together with our partner institution Ngee Ann Polytechnic, is organizing a competition for students in the Secondary Schools, Junior Colleges and Polytechnics. There are 2 different categories of competitions for participants and you are encouraged to take part in both competitions if you wish:
1) An Essay Writing Competition where participants are to submit an essay that is up to 1,500 words on the theme of the contest – “Post- Antibiotic World”
There is no restriction in the format or approach on the essay.
2) A Video Competition where participants are to submit an original video that is no longer than 3 minutes in duration. The original video’s content has to be linked to the theme: “Antibiotic Resistance: How It Impacts Us”.
So, if you are a student or know someone in the Secondary, Junior College or Polytechnic Levels who is interested in contributing to a global public health cause and also stand to win attractive prizes, please let them know about this competition.
Prizes will be presented at the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health during World Antibiotic Awareness Week on 13th to 19th November 2017.
