If you want to become the ‘social media guest’ of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the National Day Rally, then just participate in an online contest and try your luck. The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has launched the contest today.
Making this announcement through a Facebook post, the PMO has urged citizens to submit photos of a smart device or programme that has improved their life along with a caption explaining how. They could also share how Singapore can be a Smart Nation.
The selected responses will be invited to National Day Rally on August 20 where PM Lee will be speaking to his ‘social media guests’. The programme will be organised at ITE College Central. .
However, there are some easy rules to follow for the contest. The participants must "Like" and "Follow" the Lee Hsien Loong Facebook page, and post a photo of their favourite smart device or programme on their own page with a maximum 100-word caption, along with the hashtag #InviteMeToNDR. Submissions must also tag PM Lee's Facebook page in the post.
The PMO said that the submission post has to be public. A link and screengrab of the post has to be emailed to email@example.com with details like the contestant's full name and IC number.
So, hurry as the deadline for the entries is August 1.
In a similar campaign last year, the PMO team asked Singaporeans. “What would you do if you could be PM for 12 hours?”
