The 2009 Student Blogging Challenge is now nearly half way through and the students have been working REALLY hard on the weekly challenges!  Currently 52 class blogs and 150 individual students blogs from 13 different countries are participating.

To celebrate the success of the challenge while also creating an opportunity to collect examples of student work we’re giving away twelve Edublogs supporter 12 month subscriptions which you can use on your own blog or give away to a reader.

Just write a post based on any of the topics themes listed below:

  1. Your own choice of topic but must include embedded media, created by the student or class, such as a SlideShare, video, comic strip, podcast, quiz, poll.  Here’s the chance to demonstrate how creative you can be!
  2. Your story of how blogging has helped you connect to a global audience and what this connection has meant to you.  e.g. the friends you have made, what you have learnt about other cultures, how you are able to share your passions with others, how you are able to use blogging to share your views on topics
  3. What difference has blogging made to your life at school and home e.g. how has it changed how you learn, the challenges of blogging and how teachers might make the process easier

Any class or student blogger can enter, including bloggers not currently participating in the 2009 Student Blogging Challenge, but you must:

  1. Leave a comment on this post letting me know you have entered, with a link to your post plus your Grade/year level.
  2. Explain in your post which topic you are writing about and link back to this post so that we receive a pingback advising us that you have written the post (read this to understand What’s A Pingback? And How To Write Links).

For example you might copy the following into the bottom of your post and just change the topic enclosed in the qutoation marks:

This post has been written on “my story of how blogging has connected me to a global audience” as part of The Edublogger’s Student Competition!

The four best post for each topic will win and you can submit posts for as many topics you like.  And off course all winners will get a badge they can add to their blogs 🙂

Remember we’re looking for the best — so here is your chance to demonstrate your blogging and creative skills!  You have until April 30 to enter.

  1. I made my podcast on a PC. Also i didn’t really have any difficulty making it because I’m good with technology. If i had to choose the hardest part though it would probably writing it.

    1. Thanks Brett for letting me know. It always makes me curious because I was originally a podcaster. You did it really well – I know how long a good podcast can take to create.

  2. Hi everyone, once again just letting you know I’ve visited the blogs of people who have left the latest comments. Hope you all have a good Easter weekend…

  3. Just a quick note to let everyone know I’ve checked out and visited the latest posts. Please let me know if I’ve missed your blog 🙁 and I will drop past.

    1. Hi Katie, thanks for telling me you have entered, I notice that you have several podcast on your blog. Can I get you to give me a link to the one you want to use as your entry?

  7. Hi I’m Katie and I am in 10th grade. I just wanted to let you know that I am entering into the 2009 Blogging Challenge.
    See ya.

  8. Our class is a Special Education classroom of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. We commented earlier about a creative post that we left with embedded ppt, hyperlinks, and images.

    We wanted to address how blogging had affected our lives both at school and at home. It is an important part of our curriculum now, and we hope to make a difference in other classrooms by showing the benefits of blogging.
