St. Scho does it again

Jamina Anne Padilla, a fourth year student at St. Scholastica Academy, took first place in the 2009 Wildlife Month Extemporaneous Speech Competition held today at West Negros University in Bacolod City.

Her speech highlighted how threatened species can be saved even if some of them, such as the Visayan Warty Pig, cause damage to upland agricultural crops.

This is the second Wildlife Month contest win for St. Scho this week. On Wednesday, two students took first and second places in the poster art competition.

Runner-up in the speech clash was third-year USLSIS student Jorge Coscolluela. Third place went to Raxel Ann Gonzales, a fourth-year student from the Domingo Lacson High school.

The judges were City Councillor Atty Jocelle Batapa Sigue; Talisay City Councillor and NFEFI trustee, Marissa Lizares and Ruby Arribas from PENRO-DENR.
