NUSPA Chancellor's Challenge Shield 2010 Grand Finals

27 March 2010

After wishing Mother a happy birthday, I went to Eunos CC where the SLC students gathered to prepare for their house-to-house publicity for Sportacular & YouthOUT! 2010. When that was settled, I made my way to school for the Grand Finals for National University of Singapore Students' Political Association Chancellor's Challenge Shield.

The Grand Finals was held at the Lee Kong Chian Wing of the University Hall. Portraits of the present Chancellor as well as the past Chancellors decorated the lobby wall. NUS Chancellors have tended to be the President of the Republic of Singapore and that shows how much NUS means.

The PAssion team: Wei Quan, Li Yong, ME, Edgar

We waited anxiously for the results of the Semi-Finals video-making contest. We already won the Best Application Question award but that was not enough, especially when so much effort was put into the video.

Receiving the plaque for winning the 1st place for the Preliminary Round (Application Question) from CCS Project Director Zelig Dhi Lee.

Our anxious wait paid off when we received the Most Interactive Video Award!

Receiving the plaque from NUSPA President Eng Kiat:

Even though our team didn't manage to get into the Grand Finals, we are contented with our achievements. As the sole NUS team to make it into the Semi-Finals and clinching one of the video awards, we have already done the school proud.

The Guest-of-Honour for the event is Ms Grace Fu, Senior Minister of State for Education & National Development and MP for Jurong GRC.

Besides a quiz segment for the Grand Finals, the finalist teams had to present their videos and answer questions from the panel of judges. The judges are Dr Malone-Lee Lai Choo, Director for Sustainable Asian Cities & Senior Lecturer at the Department of Real Estate (NUS); Mr Wilson Ang, Founder & President of Environmental Challenge Organisation (Singapore); and Mr Steven Chia, Channel NewsAsia Co-anchor for Primetime Morning.

Congratulations to Hwa Chong Institution for winning the CCS this year!

After the event, headed down to Safra Tampines where I had Mother's birthday dinner at Sakura restaurant, Father's favourite buffet restaurant.
