From the Explore Singapore webpage:
To spark a national desire amongst Singaporeans to rediscover their heritage, National Heritage Board (NHB), together with the National Library Board (NLB) and Media Development Authority (MDA), has joined hands to organise the “Explore Singapore!” Campaign...There's going to be a TV series, events at the libraries, museums, and a contest.
...Led by a pioneering info-tainment heritage show on primetime TV, “Explore Singapore!” will be supported by newspaper columns, radio as well as blogs and SMS to engage all Singaporeans in their heritage and culture. These channels will be complemented by enriching and edu-taining activities at Singapore’s close to 80 museums and libraries throughout the island.
My liblogarian colleague, Damien, has an on-going update at his blog:

Oh, there's a mention of $10,000 worth of prizes: "You still have one last day to bring your treasures down to the National Library to win up to $10,000 in prizes!" -- say, isn't that TODAY?!
