Communications Commission will help “Truth or Fiction?” Participants with Career Development
The Communications Commission will help the winners and other participants of the “Truth or Fiction?” competition with career development by providing certified training. The training programme is composed of learning materials from the BBC Academy. After completing the course, participants will be issued with certificates and receive the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience with other pupils and students at schools and universities.
Most importantly, the opportunity to enhance qualifications will also be afforded to participants who may not finish in the top three of the competition, but display a high level of competence and effective skills while presenting their works.
The Communications Commission announced the first edition of the “Truth or Fiction?” competition for baccalaureate students on 12 October. The aim of the contest is to develop critical thinking, analysis and fact-checking skills among young people. Participants are required to identify fake news in Georgian media space that had not yet been confirmed as inaccurate. Students can submit their works by 12 November.
Winners will receive impressive ultramodern prizes from the Communications Commission, including an iPhone 12 Pro for the first place, an iPad Pro 2020 for the second place and Beats Studio 3 wireless headphones for the third place finish.
