In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic situation, students of the Faculty of Nursing at Hasanuddin University can still excel at the national level. Adi Indra WB, a class 2018 student of the Nursing Science Study Program won 1st Place in Poster Design at the 2021 National Seminar and Chemistry Festival (SENADA). This activity was organized by the Tadris Chemistry Department Student Association (HMJ) Faculty of Tarbiyah and Teacher Training at UIN Antasari Banjarmasin on April 29 2021 online via Zoom Meeting.

Adi who was interviewed on Sunday (20/6) explained that the key to winning the poster competition was in the composition of the poster itself. “The suitability of the theme of the competition with our poster can add points. Also pay attention to the use of colors, fonts, and sentence structure so that the poster is attractive and does not look like a magazine,” he explained.

The student who was carrying out the KKN revealed that there was no special motivation to take part in the competition. “When I have free time I take part in other competitions, it’s just that I’m more interested in design, that’s why I often participate in design competitions. The point is that we often participate in competitions so that our skills are honed,” he said.

Furthermore, he explained that due to social restrictions through the Covid-19 health protocol policy, many national-level competitions were held online. Such conditions open up the widest opportunity for students to participate in many online competitions, without the need to be physically present to the competition location.
