Yahoo on the Road Bus Tours Metro Schools Makes Second Stop at Lyceum University

Wazzup Pilipinas!

As part of the 4th Yahoo Celebrity Awards, Yahoo Philippines brought the fun and excitement of the Celebrity Awards around different colleges and universities in the Metro. Yahoo on the Road is a special bus where students experienced Yahoo’s latest products, take photos at the Flickr photobooth, and make requests for performers they want to see at the Yahoo Celebrity Awards Night to be held at the Mall of Asia Arena on July 18, 2014.

Yahoo on the Road showcased bands which are nominated in this year’s Yahoo Celebrity Awards, a poll-based awards event that gives fans a chance to vote for their favorite stars who have trended on the Yahoo Philippines site in the past year. It has become the most anticipated event in the Philippines to honor local celebrities, emerging stars, and dedicated fans in music, film, television and even sports.

Yahoo on the Road first stopped at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines in Sta. Mesa, Manila last June 9. Next on the campus visit was Lyceum of the Philippines University. During campus visits, the hottest bands in the country, led by Sponge Cola and Rocksteddy performed on the same stage as Celebrity Awards Emerging Band nominees, Cheats, Brisom, Yolanda Bloom and Chocolate Grass. The final stop was at Far Eastern University last July 4. During the school visits, students got the chance to win passes for the Awards Night.

Yahoo on the Road brought the Yahoo mobile experience closer to students, allowing them to vote for their favorite celebrities and providing them with an opportunity to watch the nominated bands perform for them at their very own campuses and try out Yahoo apps such as Mail, Weather, Sports, Yahoo News Digest and Flickr. The Yahoo on the Road experience has been done in United States and countries in Europe.

“At Yahoo, we continually look for ways to enhance user experience and keep them coming back for more. Yahoo on the Road is so very Yahoo - it's fun and delivers something different but relevant, says Mike Constantino, Country Sales Director of Yahoo Philippines.
