This is not really ProBlogging news but I couldn’t pass it up. Singaporean students are being encouraged to blog in the inaugural inter-school blogging championships. I wish they had this type of competition back when I was at school!
‘Nine junior colleges and 43 secondary schools will slug it out online in the Inter-school Blogging Championship organised by SingTel and the Ministry of Education (MOE).
Five student leaders from each school will help sustain and moderate the blogs from next month till August, during which their schoolmates are free to post messages on the blogs via the Internet or mobile phones. They can win more than $15,000 in cash and 3G mobile phones.
Entries must support the theme Voices of Singapore Teenagers. And it seems these voices are undeterred by fears of getting into trouble….’
