Over 3000 campus journalists and paper advisers from the ten divisions of Region XI came to compete at Jose Maria College on November 30 to December 3, 2016 during the Regional School Press Conference (RSPC).
With sheer talents and skills in journalistic writing, student journalists showed their best in the competition and took every second of the event as an exciting opportunity to learn new things and gain new friends.
“The RSPC was a great and fulfilling experience for the students and teachers. It has always been a perfect avenue to discover new things and get to showcase your skills in writing,” Jonathan Baradillo, a campus journalist said in an interview.
Some of the challenging yet engaging events were News writing, Feature writing, Photojournalism, Editorial writing and cartooning, Sports writing and even Radio Broadcasting.
“We are very fortunate to be part of the confab because we were able to experience radio broadcasting competition for the very first time. This is new in the roster of events and we are glad we bagged the 3rd prize,” Campus Adviser Anna Laurea said.
Meanwhile JMC School Administrator Nelia Q. Canada expressed elation for the success of the event. She described the even as historical and even one of the biggest event of the year considering that the number of participants is overwhelming.
The Regional School Press Conference is an annual journalism competition spearheaded by the Department of Education in pursuant of the Republic Act 7072 otherwise known as the Campus Journalism Act of 1991 which upholds the rights of the journalists in the campus level through school publications.
