How has technical-vocational education transformed one's life?

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is inviting graduates to document their tech-voc experience in a short video and share it with the agency for a chance to win cash prizes and scholarship vouchers.

"Tell us how TESDA has made a significant impact on your life. We want to listen. Inspire us and inspire others about the tech-voc ways," TESDA Director General Joel Villanueva said.

The Tatak TESDA Video Making Contest Year 2 is open to individuals and schools engaged in technical vocational education and training (TVET).

The TVET graduate should be a finisher of any course from 2010 onwards, a holder of a National Certificate or Certificate of Competency, and working either in the country or abroad.

For the school category, the technical vocational institution should be accredited by TESDA, of good standing, and holder of Certificate of TVET Program Registration.

The entry sender for either the individual or school category must produce a two to three minute video, taken at the workplace, and then uploaded in Facebook or Youtube. The link should be submitted along with the official entry through the email to the TESDA Provincial Office and copy furnished the Office of the Director General through tataktesda@gmail.com.

The videos may be in the form of dramatization, storytelling, music video and other creative format. The videos should answer the question: How did TESDA transform your life? The closing statement of the video should be: Ako si ______, sa TESDA, sumaya ang buhay ko. Buhay n'yo, sasaya rin sa TESDA."

The official entry form may be downloaded from the TESDA website (www.tesda.gov.ph).

The contest will have three levels: provincial/district, regional and national. Only the top two entries (one for each category) for each province/district as determined by the respective provincial/district screening committees will be considered for the regional level of the competition. In the same manner, only the top two entries (one for each Category) for each region as determined by the respective regional screening committees will be considered for the national competition.

Entries for the provincial/district level may be submitted from January 2 to 31, 2015.

There will be winners for best in story, best in video, people's choice award and the grand Tatak TESDA award. END
