MORE than 20 teams competed to claim the winning prize in the Brunei Association of Surveyors, Engineers and Architects (PUJA Brunei) Treasure Hunt held yesterday at the Bio Innovation Corridor (Agro Park) in Kg Tungku.
Team 2, led by Ruby Tham Shee Tin, won the challenge after becoming the first team to arrive at the designated checkpoint. Team 11 came second, whilst Team 13 came third.
The top three teams won medals and MegaStrike game vouchers. The winning team also brought home a trophy in commemoration of their success in completing the treasure hunt.
The treasure hunt was held to mark the 30th anniversary of PUJA’s establishment through the Young Surveyor’s Group from the Surveyor Division, PUJA.
The participants were government and private school students aged between 13 and 18 as it specifically targets students that are keen on joining the construction industry in the future, as well as those who are curious to learn more about the industry.
Through the event, the Young Surveyor’s Group aimed to raise public awareness on the professions of quantity surveyor, architect and engineer in general.
They also aimed to provide a chance for professionals from the industry to interact with the public, particularly the younger generation.
The treasure hunt ended with a prize presentation to the winners and a lucky draw by Hj Zulkifli bin Hj Abdul Hamid, the President of PUJA 2014-2015.
