The competition started on 30 June and ended on 5 August. As it was a competition for different school, Amazing Kids also joined in to lift up the different talents and skills in the school. It was a competition for high school and primary learners in the different schools.
Seven learners were required to participate from each school and from Amazing Kids about ten learners joined: three learners from high school and seven from primary school. Each learner was given an empty cement bag and pamphlet with the requirements of the competition.
The student artists were required to design a new logo for the Ohorongo cement bag for both the front and back. They had to use Namibian landmarks and any prints that their country has.
Taurai Maswahu, Suoma Mbinga and Ndapandula Johannes were the learners that joined from high school. It was a hard time for them to finish their design in the very limited time the learners had but Maswahu managed to finish her design with the other leaners on time.
The finished product had to be handed in on 5 August to their arts teacher Uncle John, who is an artist himself. Learners details were to be written on the bag in the space provided so as to that if their design was to be chosen, the Ohorongo Cement Company would be able to contact them.
If the learner who won did not answer to the call, the prize would be given to the second place student. On 15 August the winner was called by the company and Taurai Maswahu was the winner of the competition.
Due to the fact that Amazing Kids was not part of the competition, she did not win the N$5 000 but won a bag full of goods including pens, a note pad, a water bottle, an Ohorongo shirt, sun glasses, 2 cooler bags and a hat with a night light on it.
In a nutshell, the competition was a great success as all the other learners got to partake and show cases their talents. The faith was kept to finish the race.
