The Antigua & Barbuda Intellectual Property Office is extending the deadline for our School’s competition this year to Friday 30th June, 2017. This competition forms a part of this year’s activities celebrating World Intellectual Property Day under the Theme Innovation: Improving Lives. Over the last few years, our office has been focusing on Public awareness campaign geared towards the Schools through various competitions.
This year, we find the Theme to be more relatable and hence should be more appealing. We have put forward two topics encompassing the theme where entrants will have the option of developing through Essay, Poem, Interpretive Video or Poster Design. In an effort to garner more interest and entries for this competion we have decided to extend the deadline from June 02nd 2017 to June 30th, 2017.
We would like to take this opportunity urge the parents and or teachers to encourage the children to participate in this completion. The prizes for primary and Secondary Schools respectively are as follows:-
1st Place : EC $500.00 / $600.00
2nd Place: EC $300.00 / $400.00
