Win a Laptop and Smartphone for Youth Month
Every year on 16th of June South Africa commemorates the 1976 Soweto uprising to honour the learners who stood up against the apartheid government. The day serves as a reminder that young people in the country were at the forefront of our struggle. It also provides us with the opportunity to take stock of the strides that we have made in addressing issues faced by our youth.
Today the new enemy is Covid -19 which threatens the 2020 academic year as schools are closed because of the pandemic to keep learners safe. To mitigate the situation, e-learning or remote learning is being utilised to keep the learners up to date with their school work. However, this is not accessible to all learners due to many societal inequalities in the country. Most learners cannot take advantage of e-learning because of lack of resources such as internet connection, laptops, smartphones and data which are needed to access this learning platform.
The KwaZulu–Natal Museum is therefore running a competition for the month of June where a high school learner can stand a chance of winning a laptop or a smart phone. This is but a small way that the Museum is contributing to the relief of this situation. We are sure that these prizes will be invaluable resource to the lucky winners.
