Amazing site for youths
Youth.sg is pretty much self-help, competitions, and even job opportunities for youths. Although a little under rated within our local community, I checked the site out recently, and I was pretty amazed at what I found.
Youth.sg, like its name suggests, is a website meant for local youths. The website features everything under the sun, ranging from self help articles about local street fashion and budgeting, to even opportunities for youths to earn vouchers through writing, and even has a section in which the website has collaborated with Jobscentral to create a page listing down part time jobs meant for students and youths.
Vouchers and free items can be earned by simply posting articles or comments on the website, so it definitely offers young aspiring writers a chance to be able to write for the local community, and at the same time, earn free items from it, so it's pretty much a win-win situation.
The self help articles are also amazingly insightful, and touches on all the latest fashion and trends, so it's a pretty good guide for youths to learn more about local trending culture.
There are also regular competitions on the site, with more vouchers to be earned, so local youths can definitely gain more recognition for their works and at the same time, be rewarded for them.
This site really needs more attention and love, because it's one of the best Singaporean websites I've ever read.

You submit an article of your choice, say, human interest or your opinions on recent news. If youth.sg accepts your article, you will be rewarded 50 points. The best part: if you managed to accumulate enough points, you get to redeem some cool prizes!
I received a tote bag(small but handy), a kinokuniya voucher worth SGD$10 and a hoodie. It seems too good to be true but it is. The only thing is that you have to head down to their office for the prize collection. Unless it's Other noteworthy prizes include stickers, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf voucher, bens & jerry voucher and a mystery prize. Until now, I have no idea what it is. Writing articles is not the only way to earn points. You can also comment on articles, blog posts etc. Simply said, every time you contribute to the website, you get points. Even when you submit a resource such as an upcoming event.
youth.sg also holds writing contests. If your article is selected as the top entry, you get a SGD$40 Kinokuniya voucher.
