Writing Contest Winners

Posted by Chong

About three weeks ago, we held a writing contest on this blog to reward loyal readers. A few readers wrote and sent in posts (articles/essays) to take part in this writing contest. The winners are selected based on the quality of writing and usefulness of the content. In other words, will our readers benefit from the post after reading it?

I had a difficult time choosing the winners as most of entries are very well written yet the prizes are limited. All entries will be published on this blog on the coming Wednesdays. For those who do not win this contest, please do not give up and I hope you learn something during the process. Thanks for your participation. Perhaps having more than 2600 subscribers and more than a thousand readers reading your post can be considered as the consolation prizes?

Now it is the time for me to announce the winners. The winners are Afiqah Syamimi binti Masrani, Oh Coyin, 23 and AWhite. Winners will be contacted shortly for prize redemption.

Prizes: Student Web Hosting Package X 4

Each of them has just won a one-year Xtudent Hosting Plan worth RM99. Exabytes' Xtudent hosting plan is a web hosting package specially designed to meet students' web hosting needs and affordably priced at RM99 per year (just RM8.25 per month!). It offers 5GB monthly bandwidth transfer, 1GB web space and one free top level domain worth RM55.

One of the many interesting features offered by this student hosting plan is the pre-installed scripts, which enables you to create a full-fledged blog, forum or photo gallery within a few clicks without any hassle. Besides credit card and PayPal, payment can also be made via cash deposit to Exabytes' Public Bank account.

The 4 winning posts (in no particular order):

Policy vs Practice: The Multicultural and Anti-Racism Education in Malaysia's National School by AWhite
Malaysian Students by 23
My Ups and Downs as a YES Scholar by Oh Coyin
