The meaning of Singapore's 50th birthday celebrations is not something to be decided by the Government or by themes or slogans, said Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin.
It is something each Singaporean has to decide for himself, he told a crowd of tertiary students and company managers at an SG50 competition by Spring Singapore on Feb 10.
The event at Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre saw students telling stories of firms that have contributed to Singapore's growth, including bakery Gardenia Singapore and petrochemical giant ExxonMobil Asia Pacific.
This team from Nanyang Poly (with Ayam Brand marketing manager Priscilla Tan, seated in beige, at the Ayam Brand booth) was one of the 17 winners that received up to $10,000 each.
Their works will tour the country in an exhibition in the middle of the year.
