The year 2020 marks 44 years since the
1976 Student uprising. The National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) and
government departments will host numerous virtual Youth Month activities. June
is celebrated as Youth Month in South Africa, paying tribute to the school
pupils and ordinary citizens who lost their lives during the 16 June 1976
uprisings in Soweto.
As part of our build up campaign, the
NYDA will be running weekly competitions to try and assist as many young people
as possible to continue to have access to the internet; in order to stay
informed and be a part of all the virtual activities that are taking place
across online platforms. Each week; from the 25th of May to 30th of June 2020, we will run a
different competition and publish it on our online platforms. We will be giving
away mobile data vouchers, tablets, WIFI routers and many more prizes, and we
will be announcing our winners every Monday morning. On the 30th of June 2020, we will be
announcing the winner of our grand prize. The grand prize winner will be
selected from the weekly winners.
