This is not the first time MovePH has supported campus journalism in the Philippines.
During the NSPC 2017 in Pagadian City, high school students from all over the country got a taste of what it is like to work in a social news network as they competed in the Online Publishing demonstration contest organized by MovePH.
Teams of 7 members each were asked to create an online news blog using X, Rappler's free self-publishing platform. Just like in any newsroom, each member had a different role to fulfill and a different story to file within the allotted time. The same setup will be held as a demo contest this year.
Dubbed the Olympics of Campus Journalism, NSPC will gather the best student-journalists in the country. The 2018 leg of the DepED-led program will be held in Dumaguete City on February 19-23 with the central theme revolving around ASEAN Integration (READ: NSPC 2018 to focus on ASEAN Integration – DepED)
During the Palarong Pambansa 2017 held in Antique on April, MovePH, in partnership with DepEd, also trained around a hundred campus journalists and school paper advisers for 3 days. They applied the lessons from the training in covering the week-long sports event. – Rappler.com
