17 students in the region vie for 2011 OSCAR award
by Liza Agoot

A total of 17 students are vying for the top 10 posts for the 2011 Outstanding Students in the Cordillera (OSCAR).

With six provinces and two cities participating, the 17 regional finalists were selected, with one formation program and one mission – to serve.

Administered by the Commission on Higher Education Cordillera and the alumni association of the OSCAR, the final screening started with a five-day formation program which started last April 25 at the Bokod Campus of the Benguet State University.

The top 10 regional awardees will vie for the national search where they will feat against the Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines (TOSP) awardees from various regions of the country.

Dr. Ryan Guinaran, OSCAR executive director, said that the TOSP 2011 search carries the brand “Bayani” where the identity is the most important visual element of the year’s TOSP theme. 

The medical doctor, who was also an outstanding student in the country, said that the essence of the identity is echoed through font, color, and content. “Each of these element has been designed as key indicators of the theme that is relevant and resonant – aligned to the values of TOSP,” he said.

He added the identity works holistically across all touch points assisting in creating a powerful and engaging message.

Part of the formation program will happen at the 2,922 meters above sea level Mount Pulag where the final panel interview will be done by select judges from various fields.

He added that the search is a continuous response to the challenges posed to youth leaders. “The finalists of the regional search of the Outstanding Students of the Philippines-Cordillera have converged as a community with the aim to establish role models that will galvanize the youth into action, help bring about total human development in the nation, promote the common good, and share our talents, skills, and values as main avenues for nation-building.”

The 17 finalists come from different fields of specialization which includes five students from the fields of Information Technology, five in the field of Teacher Education, three from Medicine and Health Related Profession, one in Criminology, and three others from Accountancy, Business, Economics, Industry, and Entrepreneurship.

The finalists are Brian Lancelot Padilla Rubin of the University of the Cordilleras, Veronica Bito (BSU), Marisol Barnachea (SLU), Mark Lesther Mudlong (Kalinga-Apayao State College), Ahmed Abdullah Khayef (SLU), Racklyn Canuto Pascua (Apayao State college), Charity Joy Dulnuan (BSU), Ariadne Laking Cadias (UB), Lalaine Hangdaan (Ifugao State university), Loida Elaine Tibong (MPSPC), Olivia Tid-ong (MPSPC), Jonathan Zales (Abra State Institute of Science and Technology), Celeste Abansi (STI College Baguio), Jennifer Manlolo (STI Baguio), Aileen Bantullay (Ifugao State College), Florilyn Joyce Bentres (SLU), and Jane Aprille Luis (BSU).

The awarding happened yesterday at the Saint Louis University Center for Culture and Arts.
