PRSP calls for entries to 2017 grand prix and youth congress
Be a young green warrior
The power to change the future for the better lies with the millennials -- this is what Public Relations Society of the Philippines believes. This is why PRSP is tapping the power of the youth to help save the planet through effective and persuasive communication.
This year’s version of the PRSP Students PR Congress and Grand Prix focuses on the question of how the youth can effectively use Public Relations to persuade and motivate the public, including their millennial peers, to concretely adopt correct and sustainable solutions to climate change.
The activity, aptly themed “Youth vs. Climate Change: The Ultimate PR Challenge,” will have two parts. First is the Grand Prix where students from different schools nationwide are invited to submit their PR Plans and PR Digital Videos depicting their solutions to the challenge. The second part will be a series of talks where they will learn from communication and environmental experts the tips and tricks of the trade. The Congress is scheduled to happen on January 20-21, 2018 at the University of Santo Tomas Education Auditorium in Manila.
Grand prizes await winners of the Grand Prix, with as much as Php 20,000 plus trophy and certificate for the champion team of the PR Plan competition; Php 15,000 plus trophy and certificate for the second prize; Php 10,000 plus trophy and certificate for the third prize; and Php 5,000 plus certificate for other finalists.
For the PR Digital Video Challenge, the top prize will be Php 10,000 plus trophy and certificate; second prize will get Php 7,000 plus trophy and certificate; third prize is Php 5,000 plus trophy and certificate; while other finalists will get Php 2,000 each plus certificate. A special Netizen’s Choice winner will get Php 5,000 plus trophy and certificate.
Deadline for entries will be on October 20, 2017. For online video submissions, entries should be in by October 13, 2017. The shortlisted entries move on to the finals during the January Congress.
