The Cartoon Network has launched a PowerPuff Girls (PPG) Awards competition, with entries open until October 15 and the winner to be declared by the end of the month.
The aim of the competition is to showcase the talents of young girls in Africa aged 9-14 through the projects they submit.
The awards ceremony will take place in November in Johannesburg and the winners in each category will win US$1,500. The winners will be assisted by South African singer and songwriter Toya Delazy as their artistic mentor.
Entry guidelines and terms and conditions are available at www.DStv.com/PPGAwards.
“The PPG Awards celebrates young African girls and their achievements. It aims to empower young girls to express themselves and never give up on their dreams,” said Delazy.
“We hope that the PPG Awards provide a platform to bring out the strength that every young African girl carries within her and allows her to become the amazing little superhero that she really is.”
The prizes will be named the Buttercup Award, the Bubbles Award and the Blossom Award.
The Buttercup Award is for girls who can create inventions related to science and technology. The Bubbles Award is for girls imaginative enough to come up with original art works that reflect girls’ empowerment. The Blossom Award is for girls who can think outside the box and take their ideas to another level.
Cartoon Network is available on DSTV Channel 301.
