Foundation Anniversary Update

Academic Quiz and Skills Olympic 2013 Committees – 85% Ready

“I have already finished making the mechanics and criteria for the Academic Quiz both for Category A & B.” Dr. Ma. Asusina Asuncion E. Echaveria, Dean, College of Education and Chairman of the Academic Quiz Contest reported happily in a short interview. This year’s contest will have the pencil and paper challenge and the new category which is the Math & Science Challenge. According to her, the Academic Quiz Contest for the celebration of the Foundation Anniversary will be very challenging. The Quiz will send the contestants to critical and analytical thinking, decision making and a good working relationship among the groups. “Our goal is to determine the learning of the students not just by pencil and paper but also through their natural intelligence and ability to manipulate materials to achieve what is asked in a certain problem.” This is the reason why they can not reveal the details of the Math and Science Challenge though the coaches were oriented of the mechanics. However, for the pencil and paper challenge, it will involve information technology and general information. The two categories are both time – pressured. Winners will receive the following: first place will receive Php 4,500.00, Php 3,000.00 for the 2nd place and Php 2,400.oo for the 3rd place. All winners will also be given a certificate of appreciation. A consolation prize of Php 1,500.00 and Php 900.00n plus a certificate of participation await the non winners. The Academic Quiz Contest will be held on September 2 at 1pm.
