The pair of names with the highest number of votes will be given to the two new members.        The winners of the 10 pairs of names selected by the panel of adjudicators at Stage 1 will receive book coupons.   The first three pairs of names with the highest numbers of votes at Stage 2 will become the competition champion, and the first and the second runners-up, and they will receive a certificate and a souvenir.   Entries can be submitted via the campaign website. The deadline for Stage 1 of the competition is May 10. Online voting for Stage 2 will be held from May 24 to June 7.
