Cartoon Network Africa Celebrates Girls’ Achievements With The Powerpuff Girls Awards

To promote the awards Cartoon Network and Save the Children will be visiting schools across South Africa and Kenya.

The Buttercup Award celebrates excellence in science and technology and will be awarded to a young girl who has produced an invention or a groundbreaking idea. The Bubbles Award will be awarded to a girl who produces an imaginative and creative art piece that represents girl power. The Blossom Award will be given to an awards entrant that is intelligent, is always positive and has a strong moral compass, the entrant must of already made a remarkable difference for the greater good, is an inspiration to others and wants to develop their ideas further.

The Powerpuff Girls Awards will be accepting entries from Wednesday 15th August until Monday 15th October, rules for each category and general entry terms and conditions can be found on DStv’s website (http://www.dstv.com/ppgawards). The winners will be announced at the end of October and will receive their award at the the PPG Awards Ceremony which will be held Johannesburg in November. Each winner from the three categories will receive $1,500 which will be used to bring their scientific, artistic or socially revolutionary ideas to life with the help of a dedicated mentor.

We look forward to engaging with the young girls who rock for Africa.”
