We won a Knight Challenge grant!

And here's the glass-inscribed tablet to prove it!

Rhodes Journ is one of 16 winners of the 2008 Knight newschallenge - out of 3000 entrants into this international competition.

Over 4 years, the foundation will allocate $630 400 (R4,8m) to the school for a project working with mobile journalism.
