TELEWISE: Submit your best and most innovative telecentre tip

Sometimes finding a solution to a problem begins with one small idea. Share your telecentre wisdom with fellow community members by answering this simple question: How can we get more women to avail of telecentre services and digital literacy training?

Mechanics:

  • To join this competition, you have to be a member of any of our community sites (English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Russian) or the Telecentre-Europe community site and post your answer as a comment in the TELEWISE discussion forum in our various community sites from March 1 to 31, 2012. (Englsh Community site members can post their contest entries in TELEWISE Forum)
  • A tip should just be a sentence long (75 words maximum) and can be in English, Spanish, French, Russian, or Arabic, depending on which community site you submit it to.
  • Your tip should provide an answer that’s clear, easy to implement, and effective. The best tips often don’t need a lot of money to implement, they just need to work. Here are some guidelines on writing a tip:
  1. Make sure your tip begins with a verb in the active voice. For example, a common tip doctors give is “Drink 8 glasses of water every day,” instead of “Eight glasses of water must be drunk every day.”
  2. Follow you advice/action with an explanation for why and/or how. For example, “Drink 8 glasses of water every day to stay healthy”.
  • Each member can submit as many tips as they want but please submit each of your tips in separate comments.
  • A member may only win once.
  • If a tip is similar to another tip that has already been submitted, the tip that was submitted first is the one that will be considered for the competition.
  • At the end of March, a judge/judges will select the best tip from each community site’s discussion forum, leading to a total of 6 winning tips.
  • Judges will select the best TELEWISE tip based on the following criteria:
  1. Creativity, clarity, and relevance to the theme (20%)
  2. Ease of implementation (40%)
  3. Projected usefulness to community (40%)
  • For questions and a copy of the guidelines for the competition, please post under the forum discussion titled, “TELEWISE” where your Community Learning Coordinator will be able to respond to you immediately.

Prizes:

Each of the winners will receive a goody bag from Telecentre.org Foundation containing an assortment of Telecentre.org Foundation gift items.

In addition, the winners will be featured in our “Under the Spotlight” section.
