The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is ready to announce the winners of the Tatak TESDA Video Making Contest Year 2.
Technical vocational students and schools with the best video entries to the contest will be feted to the awarding ceremony on May 12 starting at 3 p.m. at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City.
The contest, which is on its second year, had drawn hundreds of entries which captured their TESDA experience and showed how tech-voc has transformed their lives. This year's theme is "Mga Kwento ng Tagumpay at Masayang Pagbabago".
There will be winners for the individual category and the school category for the Best in Story, Best in Video, People's Choice Award and the Tatak TESDA Grand Winner.
Cash prizes and scholarship vouchers await the winners in both categories.
TESDA Director General Joel Villanueva thanked all tech-voc students and schools who exerted extra time and creativity in taking part in the contest.
"The journey to tech-voc education is long and hard, but hats off to our entry senders for showing us in three minutes that it is fruitful in the end," he said.
Villanueva, together with TESDA officials, will lead in awarding the prizes to the winners.
The awarding ceremony is also expected to be a celebration of singing and dancing and show off of skills featuring students from various tech-voc institutions and celebrity guests.
The contest was open to schools offering tech-voc courses and their graduates.
The entries for either the individual or school category were in the form of a two to three-minute video, taken at the workplace, and then uploaded in Facebook or Youtube.
The link was submitted along with the official entry through the email to the TESDA Provincial Office and copy furnished the Office of the Director General through firstname.lastname@example.org.
The videos were in the form of dramatization, storytelling, music video and other creative format. The videos answered the question: How did TESDA transform your life?
