Learners get to promote tourism in Free State
Tour de Free State is an exciting initiative to promote tourism in the different regions of the Free State by exposing tourist attractions throughout the region to cyclists, their supporters and families and the media.
Learners are invited to participate in this project by writing an essay about the tourism attractions and opportunities in their region.
They should tell us in an inspiring way about the tourism attractions, encouraging readers to visit these. They should also propose other tourism possibilities that would attract young people to spend time in their region to explore, discover and enjoy. The unique features, characteristics and colourful or historic characters of their region can be included in the blog. The best blogs will be published in a newspaper, thus they will contribute to publicizing tourism in their region and will get acknowledgement for their excellent writing skills.
This could be an excellent creative writing exercise and will also encourage learners to do a bit of research about their region, the tourism industry and create awareness and appreciation for their own region’s tourism attractions.
Participants can go the Tour de Free State website at www.tourdefreestate.co.za and enter their contribution on the blog section by clicking here.
If they do not have access to the website on computers, they can enter through their phones or fax it to 0862358700. The essay should not be more than 500 words and participants should add their names, surnames, the name of their school and the region where they come from.
