Epson awards the creative with Gift of Brightness Essay Writing Contest

Epson Philippines has recently concluded “Gift of Brightens” (GoB) Honor Roll Essay Writing Contest – an activity geared towards encouraging students from beneficiary schools of Epson’s Gift of Brightness Program to share stories on how their products provide opportunities to make learning exciting and productive from the future leaders of our society.

Winners were each awarded an Epson Honor Roll Baon Package, while the schools they represent each received Epson inks and ribbons to be used on the previously donated Epson printers.

In case you haven’t heard the Gift f Brightness Advocacy Program by Epson Philippines provides deserving schools and students the technology and resources to support the faculty and their students in their school requirements. Started in December of 2013, each beneficiary school received Epson printers, projectors, document camera, and other Epson products and supplies.

The GoB Honor Roll Essay Writing Contest was open to students of Batch 1 and Batch 2 beneficiary schools totaling 30 schools, and was concluded before the end of School Year 2016-2017.

The winning essays for the GoB Honor Roll Contest are:

“Makabagong Teknolohiya” by  Jesamel A. Gamit – Grade 6, San Jose Elementary School Pag-ibig sa Nayon Annex, Quezon City

“Visualist” by Zean Clifford Gaut Dellera, Grade Vi-Camia, San Joaquin Central School,  San Joaquin Palo, Leyte

“Uplifting the Youth to the 21st century” by Mariah Jen P. Lorenzo, School Ninoy Aquino Elementary School

“My Door for the 21st century” by Hailey Seloterio, Ninoy Aquino Elementary School

“The Change Just Came” by  Marinzki R. Victorio, Ninoy Aquino Elementary School

Epson Philippines is currently selecting another batch of beneficiary schools with the help of DepEd and other partners.

“For this GoB Honor Roll essay-writing contest, we asked the students to write about how the Epson technology package helped them in their studies.  We were truly inspired by the stories we received from them, motivating us to help more schools under this program, “says Ms. Donna V. Ferro, Head of Marketing Communications and PR, Epson Philippines.

Epson Philippines has just finished awarding a new set of 15 schools last March 2017, bringing the current total of GoB beneficiaries to 45 schools, with another batch for selection within this year.

“We are focusing on selecting schools from areas that have yet to receive a similar donation, and we are working with partners from both the private and government sectors to help us complete this latest batch. We also plan to continue initiating projects like the Honor Roll Essay Writing, so we can inspire the students in their learning journey,” concludes Ms. Ferro.
