    Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS) has great pleasure today to launch the STANDARDS DAY ESSAY COMPETITION for 2012 with the topic "Less waste, better results – Standards increase efficiency". This competition is aimed to raise awareness amongst students who are prepared to enter the job market as the next generation on how and why standards are developed; and to make students aware of the need and benefits of standards. This competition encourages students to explore their own unique perspective on the role of standards in increasing efficiency, better results and in reducing waste.

    World Standards Day is celebrated internationally each year on 14[SUP]th[/SUP] October to honor the efforts of the thousands of experts who develop standards within standards development organizations. The aim of the World Standards Day is to raise awareness among regulators, industry and consumers as to the importance of standardization to the global economy.

    Standards are crucial for increasing efficiency. This issue has come to the forefront as global challenges like sustainability and financial uncertainty mean that organizations are challenged to achieve better results with less waste.

    The essay competition is open to all secondary school students. Those having an interest to participate will have to bear in mind that, they have to arrange on their own for attending the Awarding ceremony. Prizes will be awarded to the top three essays with the first winner receiving a MINI LAPTOP, the second winner will get a DIGITAL CAMERA and the third prize winner will receive a SAMSUNG GALAXY MINI MOBILE PHONE.

    More information on this competition can be found on the TBS website at and on our Facebook page The closing date for this competition is 7[SUP]th[/SUP] October 2012.
