Singapore Prize 2019

The Singapore Prize lottery game provides at least $2 Million in prize money. A ticket must match all six numbers drawn, and there is one-in-11 chance of winning the jackpot prize. Prizes won can be used to purchase goods or travel tickets while proceeds from games go directly back into supporting charitable and community causes in Singapore. Since its introduction, its prize fund has steadily been increasing – now making an integral part of Singapore’s economy.

The prize fund of our game consists of a premium prize and various secondary awards, such as our Super Bonus prize awarded based on correct entries to a draw. The primary prize is fixed amount money while secondary prizes may include specific answers to certain questions as well as special rewards for more popular responses or weekly bonus prizes for high scoring entries. These prize funds constitute a large part of revenue raised through public participation; public engagement being central to its funding model.

Winners of the Singapore prize can benefit from many advantages, ranging from cash awards to exhibition tour opportunities. Furthermore, their achievements will be acknowledged by peers and wider society – which could provide further assistance with projects or career prospects in future projects and endeavors. Administered by NUS Department of History, submissions can come from writers of any nationality who use English in their works – see here for submission guidelines and details!

NUS’ Singapore History Prize was created in 2014 through an endowed donation from an anonymous donor to honour works that explore various aspects of Singaporean history. The 2019 shortlist included Seven Hundred Years Of Singapore by Kwa Chong Guan, Tan Tai Yong, Peter Borschberg and Derek Heng; Sembawang by Kamaladevi Aravindan in 2020; State Of Emergency by Jeremy Tiang in 2017 and Home Is Where We Are (2020) by Margaret Wang and Wang Gungwu.

This year’s event will not only include an award ceremony but will also showcase local activations activities which the public can take part in. Furthermore, Earthshot Week begins on 6 November with this event as its first activation point and strives to aid global leaders, businesses, investors and governments accelerate solutions and take tangible actions for planet healing.

Poet Grace Chia stirred controversy when she delivered an address via videoconferencing at last year’s Singapore Prize awards ceremony that accused it of sexism. Grace found fault with how two male poets shared this prize equally and this decision bothered her; Grace noted this decision “reeks of engendered privilege”. Grace advocated for more diversity on both jury panels and in judging processes and called for increased representation; in response, Kishore Mahbubani, Meira Chand, Peter Coclanis were appointed. Xueyuan Wu and Chen Yun joined current members Kishore Mahbubani Meira Chand and Peter Coclanis to comprise this year’s awards ceremonies.
