EssayCon 2019

EssayCon date extension

Technology Times in collaboration with Pakistan Council for Research in Water Resources and is announcing its 13th essay writing contest EssayCon 2019.

This Year’s Title:

‘Hand Washing by all’
Clean Green Pakistan will leave no one behind

Keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. Germs can also get onto hands if people touch any object that has germs on it because someone coughed or sneezed on it or was touched by some other contaminated object. When these germs get onto hands and are not washed off, they can be passed from person to person and make people sick. 

Technology Times in collaboration with its partner organizations is organizing in an effort of EssayCon 2019 to harness the energy, creativity and initiative of the Pakistan’s youth in promoting a culture of awareness of Hand Washing and Clean Green Pakistan. It also aims to inspire society to learn from the young minds and to think about how each of us can make a difference in the world.
