ORGANIZER: Mu Sigma Phi Medical Sorority, Inc
THEME: “Tabi-tabi po” (Exploring Philippine Health Myths)

Call for Entries

The contest is open to all individuals aged 18 and above and
currently residing in the Philippines. Participants are challenged
to break away from a clinical, straightforward, and sanitized
presentation of health, and to mold it in a form that is enjoyable
and of interest for its young audience.

We highly encourage participants to explore different writing methods, literary forms (prose or poetry), genres (i.e. comedy, horror, science fiction, fantasy) and approaches in presenting an otherwise serious and
scientific topic. Entries should be easy to read by children aged
five to ten (5-10) years old, and can be easily relayed to them even
by poorly literate adults (parents or guardians).

Deadline for submissions is on 15 May 2010. Winners will be
announced on July 2010.
