To mark the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, the Zonta Club of Cebu II, Philippines, partnered with its student club, the Golden Z Club of the University of Southern Philippines (USPF), to organize a digital advocacy video competition.
The competition is divided into four categories:
- Animation videos.
- Literary Pieces.
For each category, the clubs asked the contestants to focus on topics such as violence against women, cyberbullying, cyber pornography, teenage pregnancy and the importance of literacy.
Due to COVID-19, the student club had to be creative with their Zonta Says NO activities. With the rise of digital apps, social media and mobile browsing amongst their peers, they decided to hold a contest to develop their classmates’ creativity, digital competence, communication, understanding and leadership skills.
The student club also sought to increase student educational research and explore and engage with women and girls’ issues.
The judging panel was composed of members of the Zonta Club of Cebu II. The club donated cash prizes for the winners.
