TANB 2016 -Themed Hari Jadi Malaysia

The Art of Nation Building 2016 (TANB) is running the whole of this month up until the 30th August themed ‘Hari Jadi Malaysia’ in the spirit of the national month. “The theme ‘Hari Jadi Malaysia’ has a dual meaning where it could mean ‘The day Malaysia was made’ or it could mean ‘the birthday of Malaysia’. It just depends on how the student wants to decipher from it but we are certainly looking at the originality and the factual accuracy of their masterpieces as well as a brief synopsis not more than 100 words in Malay or English which best describes their artwork.” said Organising Chairperson of TANB, Dr Pamela Yong.
The competition is jointly organized annually by the State Education Department, Society Empowerment & Economic Development of Sabah (SEEDS), Federation of Sabah Chinese Women Association (FSCWA) and Junior Chamber International Kota KInabalu (JCI KK).
