The world is changing and developing more rapidly by the day. As the leaders of tomorrow, the youths of our society are charged with the task of propelling our race forward. However, there is much more to progress than merely inventing new technology and improving our quality of life. We are also obliged to pull the less priviledged members of our society with us, and leveling out the playing field. Our event, headlined 'Moving Forward' seeks to show youths the fruits of modern research, how to bring out the leader in all of us, our responsibility to help impoverished children, and most importantly, how to make the step forward to achieve our own dreams.
