Regions 3, 4-A students dominate journalism meet

Elementary pupils from Region IV-A Calabarzon and High School students from Region III dominated the 2013 National Schools Press Conference (NSPC) after the Department of Education (DepEd) has declared them as overall winners in Group Contest, Individual Contest and Group and Individual Contest. Education Secretary Armin Luistro said the culminating activity of the Campus Journalism Program is embodied in DepEd Memorandum No. 221, s. of 2012 or "Implementing Guidelines on the Conduct of the 2013 NSPC" with the theme "Campus Journalism: Championing Ethics in Social Media."

In DepEd Memo No. 107 series of 2013 dated June 18, the DepEd through the Department of Elementary Education (BEE) and Bureau of Secondary Education (BSE) officially announced the results of the 2013 NSPC for School Year 2012-2013 held on April 8-12, 2013 in Ormoc City, Region VIII.

"The conference showcased the elementary pupils and secondary school students' journalistic competence," Luistro said. "It was attended by 4, 019 students, teacher-advisers, key officials of the regional and division offices, practitioners, and academicians of prestigious organizations and learning institutions nationwide," he added.

"We congratulate the winder and top performing regions," Luistro said. The DepEd also acknowledged the support of the host region, teachers and students, and the local government units of Ormoc City who contributed to the success of the NSPC.

The results include the winners of the Individual Writing Contests in seven categories, Group Contests, Scriptwriting and Radio Broadcasting and Collaborative Publishing at the Elementary and Secondary Level.

"The decision of the Board of Judges in all aspects of the contests is final and irrevocable," Luistro reminded.

In support of the development of digital literacy and in consideration of the 21st Century Core Skills which children need to learn, the DepEd implemented changes in the conduct of the NSPC to "model and provide opportunities for campus journalists to demonstrate their journalistic competence."

    China faces a dilemma in Ayungin Shoal and other contested areas. If it waits for the ITLOS—which may decide against it—it would have tacitly bound itself to UNCLOS and risk a rogue state reputation if it asserts its claim in the South China Sea. If its militarily acts now, it may face international isolation. …
