More technical vocational (tech-voc) graduates will have a chance of sharing their success stories — and possibly winning prizes — through a short video that they can send to the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).

TESDA announced that the deadline for sending entries for the Tatak TESDA Video Making Contest Year 2 has been extended to February 28 this year.

The contest, which is on its second run, previously drawn hundreds of participants who documented their TESDA experience and showed how tech-voc has transformed their lives.

At stake for the winners are cash prizes and scholarship vouchers.

"Every day in classrooms and communities throughout the country, tech-voc graduates and schools are making an impact in the lives of others through their expertise," TESDA Director General Joel Villanueva said.

"Capture this in video and make it an inspiration to others. Spur action and change by telling others what tech-voc has done for you and your communities," Villanueva added.

The contest is open to schools offering tech-voc courses and their graduates.

The 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 tech-voc institution should have program(s) registered with 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. 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, 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.

Submission of entries for the provincial/district level has been extended until February 28, 2015.

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