Hello friends. I like to ask for your help in encouraging elementary and high school teachers to join the Philippine Schools Cyberfair 2010: Believe & Unite
. Youth are challenged to publish original research projects that focus on how the positive beliefs, behaviors and contributions of their local citizens have the power to improve, preserve and unite their community.
This CyberFair competition/exhibition requires participants to complete three tasks - publish, reflect, evaluate. Student-produced projects will spotlight people, places, businesses and other things in their local community.
CyberFair is an opportunity to engage businesses, schools, and other youth organizations in educational activities that contribute to heightened mutual awareness and understanding of their community history, leaders, issues and needs. Students are encouraged to think about their own future plans, the conditions that will affect the future of their community, and issues of global importance.
This is the 8th year that we've been doing this advocacy.
Took a break for the 2008-2009 edition and re-evaluated if this is something that I still want to do. Last July 2009, finally got the motivational push
and so here it is.
Ways that you can help includes:
1. Plug the Philippine Schools Cyberfair: Believe & Unite - http://www.cyberfair.ph
on your Facebook, Friendster, Multiply, Plurk, Twitter, Yahoo, YouTube, and other social networking sites.
2. Provide technical advise to teachers/students in putting up their blog or website for their entries. Schools can register up to February 28, 2010. Website entry needs to be completed by March 7.
3. Refer sponsors
or donate any amount via Paypal (there is a donation link at the Cyberfair
We have 4 schools registered so far since I posted the announcement last week. In the past years, we normally get 30 to 50 schools registering but only around 20% to 30% get to complete their website entry.
Hope to do better this year. Any help you can extend will be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
