How To Spend Your Singapore Prize Wisely
Many people dream of winning a Singapore prize, but only a small percentage do. That’s because competing at the highest level of any sport requires a massive financial commitment over a number of years. That’s why the National Olympic Council of Singapore came up with an incentive scheme in the 1990s to reward medal-winning athletes.
The program, known as the Major Games Award Programme, was launched to give sportspeople the motivation to work hard and achieve their dreams. This includes the opportunity to win a cash prize for each medal they win at the Olympic, Commonwealth and Asian Games. But there are also other rewards like training grants and the chance to compete at the World Championships.
Getting a Singapore prize can be very lucrative, and it is easy to get sucked into overindulging in an unnecessary lifestyle after winning. Fortunately, there are some simple tips you can follow to avoid spending too much of your prize money.
For example, you should avoid buying too much electronics or expensive cars. It’s also a good idea to keep some of your prize money in savings. This way, you can use it in the future for other expenses. You can also invest some of it in real estate, which is a great way to grow your wealth.
There are many different ways to play the Singapore lottery, including traditional pre-printed tickets and online. You can also use the mobile app to track your ticket, which is available at all Singapore Pools outlets. There is a one-in-eleven chance of winning a prize. If you have won a prize, you can check your balance and prizes on the Lottery Results page of the Singapore Pools website.
The NUS Singapore History Prize was established in 2014 after an anonymous donor gave an endowment gift to the Department of History at NUS. The Prize aims to cast a wide net in its consideration of works that deal with the history of Singapore. This year, a mix of academic work and historical fiction has made it to the shortlist. Among them is Kamaladevi Aravindan’s novel Sembawang, which tells the story of life at a suburban housing estate over five decades. Another entry is Ms Hidayah Ibrahim’s Leluhur: Singapore Kampong Gelam, which draws on primary sources such as oral histories.
Standard Chartered has joined as a Founding Partner of The Earthshot Prize to help accelerate and scale up the innovative, impactful environmental solutions of the finalists, and reach new audiences globally. The company will bring its experience and expertise in catalytic philanthropy, blended finance and community engagement to the programme. In addition, it will leverage its global networks to host “Earthshot Week” in Singapore next month. This will be a week of thought leadership and innovation in the city-state, where leaders from across business, government and civil society will have the opportunity to discuss and explore exciting opportunities with TEP winners and finalists.
