CONTINUED SUPREMACY: Six-peat complete, as red-hot CALABARZON rules NSPC 2018

The first time for a region to win 6-peat in a national competition!

Clad in their signature red journalist’s vest, CALABARZON marched to the region’s first historic 6th straight championship after it dominated both individual and group events in the elementary and secondary levels in the recently concluded National Schools Press Conference (NSPC) in Dumaguete City on February 19 to 23.

With the win, Region IV-A became the first to accomplish the six-peat feat in the NSPC history.

The National Capital Region, which was determined to steal the overall crown, drew first blood after edging the defending champion in the elementary group contest, while Central Luzon remained at a striking distance.

As the perennial bridesmaid, NCR’s spirit was on the all-time high with Synergy, the official publication of Diosdado P. Macapagal Elementary School from Quezon City, winning the “Best School Publication” in Elementary-English.

However, CALABARZON’s finest proved to be too much for the Capital as it started its supreme #stron6estpeat haul in the Elementary-Filipino category with Gat Pepe of Dr. Jose P. Rizal Elementary School from Dasmarinas City bagging the “Best School Paper.”

Moreover, Region IV-A’s secondary school publications both in English and Filipino also stamped their class with The Westernian Pioneer and Tunog Pamantasan both from the University of Batangas pocketed the “Best School Publications.”

The win at the group contest gave student journalists from Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon the much-needed morale boosts coming into the announcement of winners for the individual contests.

After the grueling 5-day competition among the Philippine’s best campus journalists, CALABARZON student-journalists were declared overall champions in their respective categories – winning the No. 1 spot in the over-all ranking both in individual and group categories.

Powerhouse team CALABARZON, after waxing hot in the individual and group contests including in the school paper category, took home the overall championship award for the sixth consecutive year. It was also the first time for a region to win 6-peat since the establishment of the overall scheme in the NSPC.

Meanwhile, Region III (Central Luzon) and NCR ranked 2nd and 3rd place, respectively leaving last year’s 3rd placer, Region XI (Davao), out of the top three performing regions in this year’s NSPC.

Regional Director Diosdado M. San Antonio lauded students and school paper advisers for the record-setting peat, stressing that the win would serve as a reminder of the flare of the journalism in the region.

San Antonio, at the same time, urged campus journalists to imbibe the lessons they learned during the competition and uphold their responsibility as individuals who use the power of the “fourth estate” or the PRESS to help the country overcome economic, natural and societal drawbacks and difficulties.

“This 6-peat should be taken as a driving force for aspiring media practitioners. Lead the country into enlightenment and awareness. Student journalists and school paper advisers (SPAs) continue the legacy you yourselves started with passion and determination,” he said.

The regional director, on the other hand, called for a more active involvement among CALABARZON’s school paper advisers to ensure continuity of the winning tradition. He added that SPAs play a crucial role in preparing and honing student writers and broadcasters for future competitions.

“With the win, our teachers and school paper advisers are challenged to share valuable input during journalism trainings and symposiums. They should act as a support force for our young journalists,” San Antonio added.

Meanwhile, DepED Region 4A Education Program Supervisor in-charge of Campus Journalism Jennifer E. Lopez echoed Mario Neri’s appeal to the country’s campus journalists and news industry aspirants during the opening program of the annual journalism competition held at Lamberto Macias Sports Complex.

Neri is from the inquirer.net who served as the guest speaker for this year’s NSPC.

“Inspiring others is the extension of journalism’s reach. I want you to influence change. Be the change. Journalism is more than what we write, deliver, and tell,” Lopez said in an interview.

Lopez is the architect in transforming and propelling Region IV-A to a historic 6-peat overall national championship in Campus Journalism, an accomplishment borne out of a strategic mind, indomitable will, and empowering leadership.

In this year’s NSPC, CALABARZON has also proven that the Most Outstanding School Paper Adviser (MOSPA) and the Most Outstanding Campus Journalist (MOCJ) are residents of the six-peat champion region. Arlene Dela Costa of Tanza National Comprehensive High School netted the 2018 MOSPA award, while sports writer, Jaspher Miko Aspiras of Rosario Elem. School brought home the MOCJ honor. (Patrick T.
