Entries for Cartoon Network Africa’s Powerpuff Girl Awards closes on Monday, October 15 2018. The Powerpuff Girl Awards (PPG Awards) was created to celebrate and empower young girls in Africa between the ages of 9 and 14 who are looking for a platform to showcase their super-powers. Split into three categories, each representing The Powerpuff Girls’ characters, entrants will be able to submit projects in the Science and Tech Inventor, Social Helper and Artistic Creator categories.
Cartoon Network is teaming up with the African arm of the international NGO, Save the Children who are pioneers for children’s rights as well as Africa’s very own Powerpuff Girl, Toya Delazy, in their quest to find some of Africa’s young, amazing, girl heroes.
“The PPG Awards celebrates young African girls and their achievements. It aims to empower young girls to express themselves and never give up on their dreams,” says Toya Delazy. “We hope that the PPG Awards provide a platform to bring out the strength that every young African girl carries within her and allows her to become the amazing little superhero that she really is!”
Specific guidelines for each category and the terms and conditions for entry, can be found on www.DStv.com/PPGAwards. Winners will be announced at the end of October and will receive their award at an awards ceremony held in Johannesburg in November 2018. Each winner, from each of the three categories, will receive $1500 to help bring their award-winning entry to life with the help of a dedicated mentor, including Toya Delazy as the Artistic Creator mentor.
