Rio 2016 "Fair Play Reporters"

cifp logo

The International Fair Play Committee (CIFP) is proud to announce its  Rio 2016 "Fair Play Reporters" program!

President Kamuti says "our objective is to have as many eyes, ears, phones and cameras in as many venues as possible during the Games. In today's world, spectators become newscasters and we want to be able to leverage this to increase awareness of fair play ideals via real-life stories people witness during the Olympics." 
The first set of Fair Play Reporters are 27 George Washington University (GWU) students along with their Professor Lisa Delpy Neirotti, who will report on Fair Play activities as they conduct their research on all aspects of the Olympic Games. Professor Delpy Neirotti understands the importance of Fair Play not only in sports but in education and business, “The Olympic Games serves as a reminder to the millions of people watching and following around the world about the values of sportsmanship, hard work, and ethics that extend far beyond the playing fields".  Read more about Dr. Neirotti and what her students are doing in Rio http://business.gwu.edu/gwsb-students-go-behind-the-scenes-at-the-summer-olympics.

CIFP is very excited to have the GWU student on board and encourages other youth and student groups who would like to become Fair Play Reporters to contact Rio2016Project@fairplayinternational.org
