Our learner Mohammad Nasir Abdul Kudus, 30, from OUM Perak Learning Centre recently garnered third place in an inaugural Essay Writing Competition in conjunction with DYMM Sultan Perak's 83rd birthday celebration. Mohammad Nasir represented OUM in the public and private institutions of higher learning category. The high-tea event took place on 27 July 2011 at the Jubilee Hall, Perak Royal Golf Club, Ipoh, Perak.
The competition was jointly organised by Wanita UMNO Perak and the Perak State Education Department with the objective to encourage young people from Perak, to value the role of royalty in a constitutional monarchy like Malaysia.
Mohammad Nasir, currently in his third semester and pursuing his Bachelor degree in Nursing Science with Honours, was overjoyed with his achievement. He received a certificate of participation, a plaque and cash amounting to RM 1,000 for his effort. According to him, his winning entry titled "Kesetiaan Kepada Raja dan Negara" (Loyalty to the King and Nation) is his first attempt in writing at the competitive level.
"I came to know about this competition through OUM and I’m pleased with the result" he says proudly. He goes on to say that he will compete in similar competitions and aim to accomplish the top spot in the future.
