 RUTHIE Age has won a local anti-corruption song writing contest and hopes the lyrics will help have an impact on people.

Youth Against Corruption  Association coordinator Arianne Kassman said the contest was an initiative of Transparency International PNG.  

Age said her song focused on individuals being the change to do what was right for a better world.

She hopes the lyrics will make an impact on those who listen to it.

The song lyrics will remain the copyright of the original creators, while the youth association retains the right to use them for their own promotional and outreach purposes in the next five years.

The second and third prizes were awarded to John Mimari of Port Moresby and Samuel Hageyo of Western Province respectively.

The songs will be produced by Cannibal Track studio and launched on international anti-corruption day next month.

Kassman said the contest aimed at  encouraging  youths to communicate their anti-corruption message through music.

“We hope this contest will provide a platform for young people to express their view on anti-corruption issues,” she said.

The association is run by youths committed to the fight against corruption in PNG.
