DSWD launches website dev’t competition
In line with its thrust to involve and empower the youth, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is holding the Savvy Innovations, Zesty Exchange (SIZE) Matters Website Development Contest which will run from August 4 to September 15, 2014.
SIZE Matters is an online showcase of innovative ideas and practices of the DSWD which aims to “reinvent the things we do and the way we do things.”
The competition is open to all freelance professionals, students, and out –of-school youths (OSYs), including youth with disabilities.
Participants may fill up entry forms which can be downloaded at facebook/osm.dswd and osm.dswd.gov.ph. Deadline of submission of entries is on September 15, 2014.
Announcements regarding the contest will be posted in the DSWD Facebook and Twitter, website, IT schools, parishes and churches, barangay halls, and MRT/LRT stations.
According to DSWD Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman, the winning website design will be launched and serve as a platform where one can discuss and develop progressive proposals and practices. The site aims to enhance peer participation and encourage convergence and sharing of ideas.
Once established, the site can evolve into a long-term open platform for mass collaboration to tap knowledge from outside to find solutions to current and emerging demands and challenges of the Department, particularly on good governance and social protection. ### (DSWD-Social Marketing Service) July 31, 2014
