Singapore Prize is a competition that awards participants with cash prizes. The contestants compete in a series of challenges that are designed to test their physical, mental, and emotional capabilities. The contestants are given a specific amount of time to complete each challenge and must complete all of them to win the prize money. This contest is not for everyone, as some of the tasks can be dangerous or even deadly. It is important for contestants to understand the risks involved before signing up for the contest.
The 2023 winner of the Singapore Prize will receive a sum of $850,000. This sum will be split between the Singles and Doubles rounds of the event. The Singles round winner will receive a total of $59,500 while the runner-up will get $28,900. The semifinalist will receive $11,900.
Last year, a rigger and signalman from India named Selvam Arumugam won the top prize of $150,000 in the final episode of the show. The 42-year-old had not heard of the competition before he was selected to take part in it, and says that he did not know what to expect. He told The Straits Times that he did not know what the rules of the games were, but tried to do his best. He copied what the players in front of him were doing and ran as fast as he could to avoid being eliminated.
Arumugam, who works for a company that inspects and maintains cranes and lifting equipment, first came to Singapore in 2007. He has since earned over $58,000 from the show, which is more than enough to help his wife and three children. He says that he plans to use the money to buy a house and invest in property.
This is the third year that the Earthshot Prize has been awarded, but it will be the first time that it has been hosted in Southeast Asia. The Prince and Princess of Wales will travel to Singapore in November for the ceremony, which will be accompanied by a series of events that will comprise Earthshot Week.
The Department of History at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at NUS will administer the prize, which is open to all published works in English (written or translated) between January 2017 and November 2020 that are devoted to Singapore history. Nominations will be broadened this year to allow a wide variety of works that have clear historical themes to be considered.
The NUS Singapore History Prize was established in 2014 when an anonymous donor provided an endowed gift to fund it. The prize is administered by the NUS History Department, and is judged by a Jury Panel comprising Professor Kishore Mahbubani, the Vice President of NUS, and Professor John Miksic of the NUS Department of History. The jury panel also includes academics and historians, business leaders, and community activists. The prize was previously a biennial award until 2017.
