#ScrippsSummerChallenge Week 2 & 3

By Cidnye Weimer

The #ScrippsSummerChallenge is now in full swing!

blogThe challenge for week 2 was to start a blog if you didn’t already have one, and if you did already have one share the benefits of blogging.

VP of Member Relations, Jess Carnprobst, shared some tips on how to start a blog for those that needed some advice and guidance. You don’t have to tell #ScrippsKids twice. Check out some of the awesome blogs members created for the challenge:

#ScrippsSummerChallenge Week 2

By: Nicole E. Spears

The Scripps Summer Challenge program was introduced to help Scripps PRSSA members keep in touch, as well as in tune with their PR skills, over the long summer months.

Were you bored this week, Scripps PRSSA? We had an amazing group contribute to this week’s Scripps Summer Challenge, so I’m going to credit either an increase in downtime, or the fact that we introduced a reward for the best participant: an Ohio University journalism tee. (Check out the back–true, no?)

This week’s challenge was to download the PRSA Ethics mobile app and share one thing you learned on twitter. If you don’t have the app yet, I would definitely recommend checking it out! There are plenty of handy things to learn, here’s what our members found out:
