The NUS Students' Arts and Social Sciences Club has released judging guidelines for its NUS Blogfest 2006 competition. One of the guidelines is as follows:
WTF. It is surprising that the judges in this BlogFest panel find the F-word acceptable. “Who doesn’t use the F-word? If there is someone who has not once used foul language in his or her life, then that person is probably an angel that only exists in Heaven,” said one of the judges. So, do not worry about obscenities or abstain from using the F word.

Creative Youth Exchange said:
Seeking creative ideas based on the theme 5 Walls: Defying Definitions " White space. Negative space. Empty space. Is space empty, passive and constraining? Or is space a fluid concept and a medium full of possibilities? Bedroom. Kitchen. Study. Office space. Hotel room. Waiting room. We assign utilitarian purposes to spaces. Is the design by the creator of the space final? Or does space evolve organically with its users and inhabitants? Walls. Floors. Ceilings. Is that all that shapes a space? How can light, colours, smells, textures and sounds be designed to evoke the emotions, memories and experiences of users.
This is a very unique competition where youths are invited to submit ideas on space, beyond interior design ideas. The top prize is a 4 year scholarship and S$10000 in cash!

ripplingwave elaborated on how NAPFA (physical fitness tests for Primary, Secondary and Tertiary school students) can be a torture for students, and proceeded to explain its rationale and how students who do not fare well in certain items could train themselves.
How many of you would find pleasure in giving your arms an intense workout on a metal bar held up by two other bars or forcing as much spring as possible out of your weary legs while, at the same time, squeezing every drop of salty liquid out of your system and onto your skin? I would think that the answer in every one of your minds right now would be a big, fat “No”. In this case, the conclusion that many Singaporean students do not like NAPFA can be made.
