If you are the parents of these Kids you will know the feelings.

HP & DepEd collaborate with Write & Read program contest and open to all high schools in Public School or Private Schools, before it will run down to the final 10 Write & Read contest started to 200 students and trim down to final 10 high students.

These are the Final 10 Students of different schools who gives not just hundred percent, but a hundred and ten percent of performance and skills in writing and reading.

A truly success of these student are also success of the parents.

While watching these kids during the program I see them as a young Editor, HRM Manager, Anchor Man and Young Entrepreneur. I got carried away during the time these kids are being called one by one for their award earned from the hard work they did to reach the top final ten of the Write & Read contest.

MANILA, Philippines, October 25, 2012— The Department of Education-National Capital Region (DepEd-NCR) and technology giant Hewlett-Packard (HP) recognized ten of the Metro’s most promising young writers at the culminating activity of the Write&Read Program held at the SM City North EDSA Annex.

A collaborative story-writing competition, the Write&Read Program provided opportunities for the youth to hone their writing skills as well as their imagination in making illustrations. Among the top writers included five winners from the Junior Division namely Naomi Therese Legaspi of St. Paul College-Pasig, Geri Angela Paragas of Miriam College, Isabella Dela Cruz of Our Lady of Perpetual Succor College, Gillian Sandigan of St. Paul College-Pasig, and Aira Maria Joy Amarante of Special Science Elementary Class-Santiago de Guzman, who entered inspiring stories about achievement and success.

The five winners from the Senior Division, Katrina May Jimenez of Marikina Science High School, Courtney Allison Tirol of Manresa School, Leonor Evangelista of Don Alejandro Roces Sr. Science & Technology High School, Pamela Jenna Sabuero of Caloocan City Science High School, and Kimberly Ann Ramos of Quezon City Science High School also created winning compositions that centered on the value of technology in enriching the learning experience of today’s youth.

Themes for the Junior Division short story competition included “Technology makes learning so much fun,” “Young leaders: Going the distance with technology” and “Future dreams with A+ grades.” The Senior Division took a more serious approach, with themes such as “Score cool points in school with technology,” “High fives for high grades: Win in school, win new friends,” and “Tech-savvy whiz: connecting to A+ grades, A+ future.” The ten finalists also joined the On-The-Spot Essay Writing Challenge, the final leg of the year-long Write&Read Program which also included other activities such as writing workshops.
