One Day Leader - season 3 returns and entries are open

Season 3 of One Day Leader returns to SABC1 later this year and the organisation is calling for entries from South African youth aged 18-25, which close on 15 May 2014 at 4pm.
Great leaders are defined by their passion, persistence and courage to effect change. Are you South Africa's next great leader? Do you have what it takes to lead this country to a better future? Do you think that your ideas and solutions embrace the very meaning of democracy?

One Day Leader is a reality show that seeks the best young leaders in South Africa, and puts their leadership skills and abilities to the test. It is a thirteen-week long competency test, characterised by outwitting of brains and strategy, ultimately declaring our One Day Leader.

The tasks and challenges that will be posed to our One Day Leader participants will address social, economic and political issues that affect our country on a daily basis. For thirteen weeks, South Africa will watch as a hand-picked group of young leaders show why they should be the winner of this unique television reality series.
