Students have been offered a chance to win a free trip to Japan during the Easter holidays. Those studying in forms between Primary Five and Form Six have been invited to take part in the Ambassador of Hygiene Scheme. Entrants in the 1997-98 competition must work in pairs and submit a written project titled 'If We Are Provisional Urban Council Ambassadors of Hygiene . . .' The deadline is October 31. Students should demonstrate their knowledge of Provisional Urban Council (PUC) facilities and services, especially in the areas of environmental and food hygiene. They must make suggestions for promoting the proper use of services and show how they can spread the health message to friends and family. Entrants are divided into three groups - - Primary (Primary Five to Primary Six), Junior Secondary (Form One to Form Three) and Senior Secondary (Form Four to Form Six). Twelve pairs of finalists from each group will be invited for interviews. Four pairs from each group will be selected as ultimate winners. The 24 winners will be appointed PUC Ambassadors of Hygiene and win a free trip. 'Apart from making visits to Japan's public health services and facilities, and meeting officials and students, the ambassadors will also explain how these services and facilities compare with those in Hong Kong,' said Wan Ho-kau, a PUC assistant staff officer for health education. The winners also become members of the Urban Council Ambassador of Hygiene Club and take part in health education activities 'especially organised to equip them for carrying out their mission to promote public health in the community'.
