We are pleased to announce that the public evaluation process for the YoBloCo Awards is open! You can vote for the two best blogs of your choice in the individual category and comment on blogs in the institutional category until April 4th 2014 at 23:59 GMT.

Initial screening of blogs

After an initial selection that followed the blog submission, 145 blogs (out of 194 submissions) have met the minimal requirements of an eligible blog (in the context of the YoBloCo Awards) and have been qualified for public evaluation. There are 121 blogs in the individual category and 24 blogs in the institutional category.

How to evaluate the blogs?

The blog evaluation process is slightly different for the 2 categories. In the individual category, you can vote and also comment on the blogs. However, for the institutional category, there is no voting. The public will only be commenting on these blogs, which the Jury will take into account in the next evaluation process.

Cast your votes and comment on blogs in the individual category here: https://tinyurl.com/individual-blogs

Comment on the blogs in the institutional category here: https://tinyurl.com/instit-blog-en

Eventually, at least 5 individual prizes and 3 institutional prizes will be awarded. Irrespective of these prizes, best blogs in a country will be promoted.

Spread the word !

On the website of the YoBloCo Awards, each blog has a profile that can be accessed by clicking on the blog’s name. If you find a good blog, do not hesitate to share it on Facebook, Twitter or Google+, using the social media plug-in on that page. You can also spread the word on the voting process in general around your networks.

The blogs submitted by the youths are promoting agriculture, family farming, food security as well as youth engagement in agriculture in African, Caribbean and Pacific countries. Some may be discussing key issues in your own country. We count on your support in encouraging the youth to continue blogging through your votes and comments!
