Calling College Students! Help Transform Communities with Fellow Filipino Youth

Ideas are born from imaginative minds. And if young minds come together, they are sure to spark greater ideas. 

The youth of today may come off as idealistic but they genuinely desire to contribute and make a positive difference. Believing in the creativity of the youth, Unilab Ideas Positive, a social marketing clinic and competition in one, provides a venue for college students to share their innovative and sustainable ideas that are aimed to address the health and wellness concerns of their communities and turn those ideas into reality. 

College students who will join in Unilab Ideas Positive campaign will be provided with:

-- a 3-day social marketing boot camp where they will learn and understand social marketing approaches from a pool of experts using current and relevant social marketing practices and case studies

-- seed money so they can implement their social marketing programs within six months

Now on its third year, Unilab Ideas Positive gets even better as it focuses not only on positive ideas but also on positive outcomes to create a difference where it matters, in partnership with the Filipino youth.

This 2012, Unilab Ideas Positive is now expanding from Metro Manila to the entire Philippines, covering North Luzon, South Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao so that more college students would have the opportunity to help transform their chosen communities with their social marketing ideas.

And since more positive ideas to be developed are called for, more communities will benefit. There will be fifteen (15) teams that 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! 

With these bigger prizes at stake are more opportunities for people to come together and have this shared goal of a healthier nation. As such, it makes Unilab Ideas Positive a rewarding venue for the Filipino youth to make significant contributions where they are needed most.

College students, team up for a healthier nation and become part of this transformative journey towards a better Philippines! Start sharing your ideas! Vist for the mechanics and other details.
