It feels good to be in the company of Campus Journalism’s champion in the Philippines!
I met the trailblazers of DepEd Cavite during the Campus Journalism Caravan held in Tanza.
They shared their secrets in making Region IV- A, the National School’s Press Conference (NSPC) the ‘big’ force to reckon with.
CALABARZON (Region IV-A) has been bagging the NSPC championship for six years in a row. In 2018, it dominated the individual, group, and school paper contests.
Individual contests included news, features, editorial, sports, Science and Technology, and column/opinion writing; photojournalism; copyreading and headline writing; and editorial cartooning, while the group contests were composed of radio script writing and broadcasting, TV script writing and broadcasting; collaborative desktop publishing; and online publishing.
The school paper contest awarded the best news, features, editorial, Science and Technology, and sports sections, as well as the best layout and page design, and the overall best school papers.
They are the creme de la creme of today’s generation of school paper advisers.
A heart of a missionary for the children of Cavite was their major secret.
They always gave their all to bring home the elusive championship trophy to their respective schools.
