Bogo Public Library Holds City-Wide DepEd-sanctioned Essay Writing Contest
It was March 18, 2011 when fifty-one (51) aspiring, young writers trooped to the Bogo Public Library to win the Essay Writing Contest. They came from all over the City, each group with a teacher-chaperone, to participate in a tournament sanctioned by the Department of Education Division of Bogo and organized by the local government.
The contest was the opening move, specifically designed to discover and identify a pool of talented young people who will form the core of the publication support structure. Of the fifty partipants, three stood out with their obvious potential and decent writing skills. Ron Jacob Unabia, Kaymae Maitum and Quenie Fernan were declared the winners. Currently active writers, they are featured in page five of the Kanaas publication (1st issue). They will also be featured in this site one by one in the next posts.
The organizers also gave out medals to ten other participants who showed promise. Cash, trophies and medals - donated by supportive members of the local community - were given as prizes to the winners.
