The following is a list of prizes, medals and awards including cups, trophies, bowls, badges and state decorations awarded in Singapore. These include the Enterprise 50 Awards – established in 1995 to recognise local, privately held companies for their contribution to economic development in Singapore and abroad. The Singapore History Prize – an award that recognises outstanding historical research and writing in the areas of Singapore history, national heritage and memory.
Singapore is a city-state in Southeast Asia that is home to world-class drink venues and many of the World’s Best restaurants. The country also has a strong culture of innovation, with the government investing heavily in technology and science to propel it into the future. To celebrate this, the Singaporean Institute of International Affairs has launched the STIIA Awards to recognise those who make an impact in their respective industries. The awards are handed out annually and come with a S$10,000 cash prize each.
On his third trip to the city-state, Prince William will be a guest of the Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loon for four days as he hosts the Earthshot 2023 ceremony. The heir to the British throne, who created the award through his Royal Foundation charity in 2020 to promote new technologies to combat global warming, is visiting Singapore to showcase its role as a “hub for innovation” in Southeast Asia. During his visit, the Prince will also meet Singaporeans to see how local organizations are working to protect and restore the planet.
At Tuesday’s glitzy awards show at the MediaCorp theater, William wore an old dark green blazer and a silk scarf by Alexander McQueen, as did fellow presenters Ted Lasso actress Hannah Waddingham and actor Sterling K Brown. The bands One Republic and Bastille performed music at the event, where winners were presented with awards made from recycled materials.
In the Singapore game of TOTO (TOTO or Toto), players spend $1 to choose six numbers in the hope of becoming an instant millionaire. There are several different systems of bets, which change the odds and cost. The odds of winning a prize are 1 in 61. The higher the number of numbers you choose, the more expensive your bet will be.
The prize money is based on 54% of total sales, or 2.8 million dollars per draw. The winnings are shared by the six winning syndicates, which in turn share out the individual prize money to their members. The winner of the top prize, the Millionaire Maker Prize, wins $200,000 plus an additional $10,000 in cash. Other prizes are $50,000 for the second place, $25,000 for the third place, and a variety of smaller cash awards. The lottery is the most popular in Singapore, where more than 5.5 million people play each week. The TOTO prize pool is the largest in the world. It is comparable to that of some national lottery games in Europe and the United States. The total prize money in the Singapore game of TOTO is more than US$1.3 billion.
