“I’m a blogger. Hear me roar!”
Judging by the response of the crowd at the Singapore Blog Awards 2013 held at Shanghai Dolly, it was clear that blogging was anything but dying/dead!
Well, perhaps these kids can. Especially on a good day?
Thanks to an invitation from Omy.sg, I had the chance to attend the grand finals of the RHB-The Straits Times National Spelling Championship 2013. Running for its second year, this competition for kids aims to raise their appreciation of spelling in language and literacy in a fun and competitive manner. Targeting students in Singapore, it challenges them to out-spell each other through the awareness of phonemes and syllabication while enriching their vocabulary through the study of prefixes, suffixes and root words.
