ILOILO, PHILIPPINES - Unilab Ideas Positive, the only social marketing congress and competition for college students in the country today, is expanding this year from Metro Manila to the entire Philippines, tapping students from the Visayas region to join and become part of this campaign.
More college students will, thus, have an opportunity to help transform their chosen communities with their social marketing ideas.
And because more positive ideas will be developed, more communities will benefit. Fifteen (15) teams will each be given Php100,000 seed money from Unilab Foundation for the implementation of social marketing programs—a total of Php1.5 million seed money.
Indeed, it’s an even more exciting Unilab Ideas Positive this year with bigger prizes at stake. But more than the prizes, it’s the opportunity to come together for a shared goal of a healthier nation that makes Unilab Ideas Positive a rewarding venue for the Filipino youth to make a significant contribution where it is needed most.
Five selected college student teams from Iloilo will present their social marketing ideas aimed to improve the health and wellness situation in their chosen communities. Witness Iloilo’s youth share their plans making a better Philippines, one community at a time during our live screening scheduled as follows:
What: VISAYAS LEG LIVE SCREENING
When: May 18, 2012 (Friday), 9 am
Where: Executive Hall, Hotel Del Rio
M.H. Del Pilar Street, Molo, Iloilo City
The live screening aims to select the regional finalists who will advance to the program’s 3-day social marketing bootcamp in June. These selected groups will also be given P100,000 as seed money for them to implement their projects and see them come to life.
Being one of the 50 delegates of the Generation Change Project by the U.S Embassy in the Philippines, in partnership with Ateneo de Davao University, it would be interesting to see proposed projects by students here in Iloilo on how they could fully utilize the power of social media for social good.
