Budyong to compete in 12th Region V Press Conference

What do you think? 

Budyong, the official student publication of Bicol University College of Arts and Letters and my second family, will be joining the 12th Region V Press Conference that will be held this week January 12-14 at LRV Agri-Science Farm Resort, Calabanga, Camarines Sur. It's a three-day gathering of college campus press members organized by the Bicol Association of Tertiary School Advisers (BATSPA).

Here's the official correspondence from BATSPA:

"The Bicol Association of Tertiary Schools Publication Advisers (BATSPA) Inc. together with the Bicol Association of Student Campus Writers will hold its 12th Region V Tertiary Schools Press Conference at the LRV Agri-Science Farm, San Bernardino, Calabanga, Camarines Sur on January 12-14, 2012 with the theme: “Transformative Campus Press and the Filipino Character”.

Anent with this, may we invite your school to actively participate and allow official representatives from your institution to attend to this annual event which will convene at least 150 brilliant and talented campus journalists and publication advisers from the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), Schools, Colleges and Universities (SUCs) Bicol wide. This will highlight Group contest and Individual contest categories. CHEDROV Regional Director Dr. Freddie T Bernal will be the conference keynote speaker.

For the past 11 years we were supported by HEIs/SUCs and other schools in our thrust to have press conferences among tertiary campus writers in the Bicol region. This gathering of campus writers will be competing to the various levels in campus journalism and will represent the Bicol region to the 11th Luzonwide Higher Education Press Conference on February 2012 in Balanga City, Bataan."

To represent the Bicol University College of Arts and Letters, Budyong has comissioned only the finest, most skilled taffers to compete in the press conference:
  1. Yours truly
  2. Rey Anthony Ostria
  3. Franco Lasay
  4. Edda Mae Morata
  5. Carlo Jay Copada
  6. Jessha Marquez
  7. Reynard Sevillano

  10. Lorena Fuellas
  11. Angeli Ched Precones
  12. Caryl Gamis
  13. Zandro Amador

What really excites me about this whole affair is not only the fact that it's the biggest annual gathering of student press members, but also the venue is just divine. No, I haven't been to LRV Agri-Science Farm yet but basing from the wonderful photos from their website, it's safe to say that the place is pretty badass.

Here's some photos off their website, :

Really hoping all of us could break through the Top 5. Fingers are crossed and eyes are set on Bataan! BUDYONG FTW!
