  • Seminar on protecting children in cyberspace held
    ISLAMABAD (May 18 2009). I guess the results were to be announced then and the winners were to be called in the seminar.

  • To
    All Dear Participants!

    “PTA should publish the names of winners on Net and in newspapers!!”

    Hundreds of participants are waiting but no results…

    We should write some thing to news papers against this fraud of PTA!

    They have wasted our time a lot…!

    I think PTA don’t want to give Cash Prizes to the Deserving participants (Winners)

    “Action Speak louder than words”….So do some thing!

  • Salam,
    PTA’s competition on ITU’s theme “Protecting Children in Cyberspace” was announced in April 2009. Being the compulsive writer that I am, I also wrote for it and then nothing happened, no results for a full year. Lo and Behold, on the 25th of June 2010 I got a call from PTA that my essay had been judged as the best. This was followed by a cheque of Rs 100,000. I have uploaded the article on my Blog, please follow the link to read it. Thanks and Bye. Nauman.
