Before filling in the registration form please read the following:
Who should register
- Only students who have their own personal blog can register
- Students who are going to do the activities otherwise mentors’ time is wasted.
- Students who want to connect with other students around the world
A few days after you have registered
- Check the student participants page which will appear in the header area to make sure you are there. Check very carefully as we don’t need names being doubled up – again that would be wasting time of the mentors.
- If you are not on the participants page, register again being careful that your blog URL is correct
- If you are on the participants list, start visiting other students your age or with your interests.
- Fill in the subscription by email so you are notified when posts are published each week – first challenge will be March 1 or if you have Edublogs reader, click on follow then you will be able to read posts in your reader.
- Make sure you have some great posts written so others can leave comments.
If you have a twitter account, use the hashtag #stubc15 to notify others of your posts
So you have read everything above this line, now is the time to register
You have heard about the student blogging challenge and want to join in for this session?
Then fill in the form below remembering the following things:
- If your blog URL is very long, then use a shortener such as this one from Google Also handy if students are registering their blogs especially if kidblog as the URL is usually long.
- In case I need to contact you, an email is the easiest way, so please fill that in on the last question on the form. This is not published but other teachers could contact me in case you don’t have a contact spot on your blog.
Hope you enjoy this the 12th blogging challenge.

Welcome to the organizational post for the 12th Student Blogging Challenge.
The first challenges will be published on 9th March, 2014.
Registration forms for classes, students and mentors will be published this weekend. These will each be on a separate post with a Google form asking for certain information. Once you have registered as a class or student, you will be able to visit the participant pages which will be found in the header area of this blog beginning March 1.
Mentors when registering, I will only need name and a way to contact you to send reminders such as an email address. The results from this form will not be published, but you will also be asked to write a short bio in the comment area of the registration post.
We will be having a badge again that can be added to your blog. Watch out for a post by the Edublogs team about how to add the badge to your sidebar.
This year I am hoping some classes will run one of the challenge weeks. But this is still being discussed. If your class would like to run the challenge for one week, please leave a comment mentioning the theme you would like to set challenges for eg global issues, history, my country, nature, and the date for it to be published.
