Students hold annual Schools Press Conference

ELEMENTARY students aspiring to become journalists in the future joined the annual Division Schools Press Conference held at the Division Training Center of Dagupan City last week.

Representatives of at least 30 schools in the city listened to lectures from veteran members of the local media then competed in writing articles on news, editorial, feature and sports plus copy reading, headline writing and editorial cartooning.

The Division presscon also featured contests on  scriptwriting, radio broadcasting, collaborative publishing and photojournalism.

“The two-day event aims to harness and hone the journalistic skills of the students which they could use in coming up with their school papers and in the national finals,” said Dr. Venus Estonilo,  education program supervisor in the city.

This year’s theme was ‘Campus Journalism and Transformational Leadership.’

The top seven winners for every category will advance to the regional contest slated in December this year. (PIA1-Pangasinan/VHS)
