JJIE.org SchoolHouse Witness Project in National News Challenge


As you know, the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange is a trial project to find new ways to support the coverage of important niche issues that the mainstream media no longer covers. So we are always looking for ways to improve our coverage, especially in reaching out to you to supply information that our reporters need to know.

In this digital age we have to make that as easy as possible; hence, our idea for the SchoolHouse Witness Project. I like it a lot and submitted it to the Knight News Challenge, which underwrites innovative ideas. We are now in the Second Round of the competition.

You can see our submission at SchoolHouse Witness Project.

This is a partnership with the Konpa Group in the Ushahidi network, which has done great things in information collecting via mobile texting in Africa.

I do hope the idea moves on to Round Three. Since it is public, please give the SchoolHouse Witness Project a look right here. Also while there, if you like what you see, please give it a good rating. That too would be nice. And if you have ideas for the JJIE.org, please send them our way.
