Zetizen Con 2K17 is an annual event held by Jawa Pos in the Pakuwon SSCC ballroom. What’s unique about Zetizen Con is that every year they have a different theme. This year’s subject was called Zetizen Avenue. In this competition we were asked to create 3x3m booth with a team consisting of 15 students. We decided on the theme of Breakthrough and used performing arts as our theme, discussing the role of Ciputra Hall in our school.
The Zetizen Avenue competition allows you to finish most of the booth at school before assembling it in the SSCC ballroom. The preparation takes about one and a half months. This competition requires great deal of commitment, as we need to make everything from scratch. We worked during holidays until night time and during the weekends. The result, though disappointing we didn’t win, make us proud. We are particularly pleased when people from other schools praise and recognize our hard work. It is a moment of realization that all our hard work and sacrifice, the hours that we spend everyday working, is worth it.
This competition is a great experience to train our commitment, artistic, literacy and social skills. It was an experience that we don’t simply want to pass unnoticed because we didn’t win. This will definitely be a memorable point in our high school life.
