Note: Registrations have now closed. Please consider volunteering for the next Student Blogging Challenging beginning in March 2020. Registrations will open in February. 

The 23rd Student Blogging Challenge is set to begin on October 6! This is a way for students to learn about publishing online while connecting with others around the world. 

Read more about the challenge here.

We’re looking for a team of adult volunteer commenters. Can you help?

Commenters are needed for the next STUBC

Video Message

Here is a one-minute video message I recorded last time to help spread the word about our call for commenters. Could you share it with your colleagues or PLN?

Note: The last challenge was 10 weeks but it is now 8 weeks and will finish at the end of November.

The more commenters we can get on board, the more support our participating students will receive!

Note: Older students can also be commenters if they’ve participated in the Student Blogging Challenge twice or are invited by organizers. Students are welcome to get in touch if this appeals or they have questions.

  1. Hi Kathleen,
    Thank you for taking me again. I’m very happy to remain a Students’ Challenge Commenter with Edublogs.

  2. Hi
    Here for my 2nd year. Thanks for being such a great group to be a part of. Still learning as I go.

  3. Hi Kathleen, I would like to participate and be a commenter for the challenge, but I do not have a blog or website (as asked in the form above). I am a full-time student and pre-service teacher, so I would love to do this, but not sure how to!

    Thanks!
    Hannah

    • Hi Hannah,

      I will let Sue Wyatt know that you’re involved in education and I’m sure she’ll be happy to accept you as a volunteer. Thank you so much! We really appreciate you. Sue will be in touch.

      Thanks,
      Kathleen

      • I’m pleased to be a part of it, Kathleen.
        Would you mind if I wrote a blog post for readilearn.com.au and linked back to this one, letting people know about the challenge?

        • Feel free, Norah. That would be great to help spread the word!
