The 8th edition of the DStv Eutelsat Star Awards competition is back following a successful Ugandan edition. Intelligent youths are urged to be part of the competition by writing a creative essay or designing a poster based on the following topic: ‘Currently, satellites are being used in a variety of ways but there is always room for expansion and growth.’ Uganda born Amos Mumbere, who was the overall winner in the previous edition, is set to fly to Paris in a couple weeks from where he will jet onwards to French Guiana to witness a live satellite launch as part of his prize. Students between the ages of 14 and 19 stand a chance to walk in their footsteps by submitting their Essay or Poster to any MultiChoice Office listed on the entry form. In 2016, Emmanuel Ochenjele of Christian Discipleship Mission International Academy, Gboko, Benue State, emerged the continental winner in the poster category. MultiChoice and Eutelsat are convinced of the power of science and technology education to encourage young minds to positively change their world. This pan-African collaboration has created a meaningful engagement with students, the academic community and the scientific world and has given young Africans the opportunity to envision their dreams coming true. Over 7,000 students have taken part in the DStv Eutelsat Star Awards since its start in 2011 while 24 students from all over the continent have had their lives changed as it continues to inspire young people across the continent to become excited, involved and exposed to science and technology concepts and satellite technology.
