Argo, a multi-media communications company, has selected five winners from the 216 entrants that submitted their Future Stars entries. The competition targeted aspirational youth under the age of 21, to motivate them to believe in themselves and in education's power to help them achieve their dreams.
The five received the most votes from the public on the website and, by sharing their ambition, each receives R10 000 to help make their dreams become a reality.
