A. Background

In 2018, SPX had launched the inaugural national essay competition targeting all secondary schools around Fiji. Overall, an overwhelming response was noted for this initiative and there were six different winners announced and awarded with various prizes which was highly publicised through various media forms. Additionally, the overall winners were also invited to attend and receive their credentials on the national platform at the 2018 
SPX Annual Awards event where the Chief Guest was the Attorney General and Minister for Economy, Honourable Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
