In celebration of SG50, POSB and People's Association, together with National Library Board and SoCh in Action, launched the KidsWrite Campaign to capture Singapore children's vision of the nation in 2065.

Through this campaign, we reached out to more than 5000 children in Singapore.

Best entries were compiled into a limited edition SG50 book "Our Homeland 2065: Musings of Singapore's children" which was launched on 13 Sep 2015 at the POSB PAssion Run for Kids event. Find out more at www.posb.com.sg/kidswrite.
