Registrations are now open for the next Student Blogging Challenge! This is a way for students to learn about publishing online while connecting with other students around the world. 

The Student Blogging Challenge is 100% free and you can read more about the challenge here.

The sign-up form in this post is for students to register as individual student bloggers. Want to register your class instead? This is the form you need. 

Registration Information

Before filling in the registration form below, please read the following information.

Who should register?

Students should register who:

  • Have their own personal blog (any platform)
  • Want to connect with other students around the world
  • Have permission to take part from their teacher/parents
  • Are aged between around 8-16
  • Are located anywhere in the world

Note: Your blog must be public on the web with comments enabled in order to participate.

Reminders before registering

Please read through the Frequently Asked Question guide which explains more about the challenge.

Mailing List options for students:

  • Students with their own email address might want to sign up for our email list to get sent all the Student Blogging Challenge news and the weekly posts. Click here for the mailing list sign up form.
  • Students without email addresses can check the weekly post on this site each week and/or ask a parent or teacher to sign up for the mailing list. Sometimes teachers post the challenge information on a class blog for students to refer to as well.

Before the challenge begins on October 6

There are a few things you can do prior to the challenge to make sure you’re ready to go in October.

Check your registration

  • A few days after registering, check the student participants’ page. Look for ‘2019 Students’ in the header area of this blog. Check this list prior to October 6 to make sure you are on the list and your details are correct.
  • If you are not listed on the participants’ page, register again being careful that your blog URL is correct.

Other ways to get ready

  • If you are on the participants’ list, start visiting other student blogs if you have time. You might choose to visit students who are a similar age to you or who share similar interests.
  • Consider starting the Blogging Bootcamp self-paced course if you’re new to blogging and need to get your blog set up before beginning.
  • Try to have at least one post published on your blog so others can leave comments when they visit.
  • Spread the word! For students/classes that use Twitter, the hashtag is #STUBC.

  16. Hi Kathleen! I have a quick question. When does the challenge start? I have been eagerly waiting!

    • So glad you’re keen to take part, Hannah. It starts in two weeks on Oct 6! 🙂

  17. I am eager to enroll my students in the Student Blogging challenge again! I was wondering, though, if a Google Site or a Wakelet site would work for individual student blogs?

    • Roberta Caudill
    • Hi Roberta,

      We often have some classes who use Google Sites so feel free to give that a go if it works for you. I’m not sure that Wakelet would really work but I could be wrong!

      Hope to have your wonderful students on board again!
      Kathleen
