CNA, SINGAPORE: The National Environment Agency (NEA), which kick-started an online song-writing competition in July, has picked 13 finalists.
One of them is 10-year-old Justin Teo, whose original composition “What a Lovely World” got him a spot in the finals.
Justin said he composed the song because he felt mankind should stop harming the Earth with its actions and learn to protect and treasure it.
NEA said the inaugural Eco Music Challenge underscores its ongoing efforts to galvanise everyone to play a part for the environment.
All 13 finalists will go through a three-week mentorship programme with veteran composer and singer-songwriter, Clement Chow.
It will prepare the contestants for the finale concert on October 23, where the winning song will be selected as the official Clean and Green Singapore 2011 song.
The top three winners will walk home with cash prizes of S$5,000, S$3,000 and S$2,000.
