Youth Olympic Games 2010
At the inaugural Singapore Youth Olympic Games in 2010, PPS was the official writing instruments sponsor. PPS provided writing instruments for athletes, officials and volunteers. Premium items such as fountain pens were developed and sponsored as Singapore 2010’s corporate gifts.
PPS also presented a Limited Commemorative Edition Pilot Blossoming Orchids Pen to the Singapore Youth Olympic Games Organizing Committee (SYOGOC). The pen presentation was meaningful as it marked a significant and timely reminder that Singapore was on its way to rewriting its sporting history. Inspired by the vibrant spirit of YOG, the commemorative writing instrument encapsulated the energy and vigour of the youth athletes heralding in fresh new beginnings. Featuring an 18-karat precision gold nib with rhodium accent, the Limited Commemorative Edition Pilot Blossoming Orchids Pen was only limited to only 100 pieces worldwide.
The pen continues to be displayed at the YOG Learning Centre and at the YOG Museum after the Games.
In 2012, PPS was invited to include its pens (from the Frixion and BeGreen series) within the Science Time Capsule, a testament to the brand’s achievements in creativity and innovation. PPS was also a sponsor for the Science Centre Time Capsule community project and exhibition in 2012. The exhibition was a feature of contemporary research and technologies of past scientific achievements, which gave youths an understanding of the pace of discovery and creation.
