Quezon-based Students Win Big In UNESCO Competition

A team of students from Lopez National Comprehensive High School from Quezon Province won first prize in United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Bangkok’s Better Learning, Better Life competition.

The contest was participated in by students from across the Asia-Pacific including Australia, China, India, Iran, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines who shared their vision on the future of education through both written submissions and video entries.

UNESCO Bangkok asked the youth of the region: What kind of skills will be needed for the future? What should young people learn and how should they learn it? The answer can either be written or in video form.

The winning Lopez National Comprehensive High School students answered via a video presentation identifying “innovative teachers as the ultimate resource” and that learning “out of the box” is the type of learning crucial for the youth to lead a better life and a better future.

The Quezon-based students received tablet computers from UNESCO Bangkok as prize for their winning entry.

“We share in the happiness of our young students who correctly pointed out that innovative teachers as well as non-traditional student- learners are important factors in shaping a bright future for education,” Education Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC said.
