Contship La Spezia sponsoring the “Classroom Reporters” project: closing ceremony today

“Classroom Reporters” is the name of the project, currently at its 16th edition, for students in sixth, seventh and eighth grade of various local Italian schools. Students participating in the project have the opportunity to “create” a newspaper article from scratch

 

The project is organized by La Nazione, an Italian newspaper that is currently running the 16th edition of “Classroom Reporters”. In the La Spezia edition, more than ten local schools participated, and Contship Italia through La Spezia Container Terminal, which is already actively engaged with youngsters in the Porto Lab project, sponsored the 2018 edition. Daniele Testi, Contship Italia Group Marketing and Communication Director attended the closing ceremony where hundreds of school children attended the award show.

The winner of the award was Grade 2B from Isa4 Pellico Middle School in La Spezia, with an article named “DIS-Like. How “likes” are affecting our day-to-day life”.

Daniele Testi commented: “Contship Italia Group, through La Spezia Container Terminal, has been supporting this project, that involves hundreds of students from local schools, for many years now. Correct communication is the foundation for every community that wants to train new generations, teaching them the basic civic duties and the techniques needed to critically analyze their surroundings. Today, more than ever, with social networks and pervasive communication, we are all “journalists” in one way or another. This is why projects such as “Classroom Reporters” run by La Nazione are fundamental, and they will keep receiving our full support
