Epson's Gift of Brightness Program picks five winning students and schools
Using their stories on how Epson products helped them achieve excitement and productivity while learning, five students recently rose to the top spots of Epson Philippines’ Gift of Brightness (GoB) Honor Roll Essay Writing Contest.
“For this GoB Honor Roll essay–writing contest, we asked the students to write about how the Epson technology package helped them in their studies,” Ms. Donna V. Ferro, Head of Marketing Communications and PR of Epson Philippines, said.
The winners are Jesamel A. Gamit, a Grade VI student from San Jose Elementary School - Pag-ibig sa Nayon Annex in Quezon City, who wrote “Makabagong Teknolohiya”; Zean Clifford Gaut Dellera, from Grade VI-Camia of San Joaquin Central School in Palo, Leyte, who wrote “Visualist”; Mariah Jen P. Lorenzo of Ninoy Aquino Elementary School who wrote “Uplifting the Youth to the 21st Century”; Hailey Seloterio, also from Ninoy Aquino Elementary School, who wrote “My Door for the 21st Century”; and Marinzki R. Victorio, another student from Ninoy Aquino Elementary School, whose work title is “The Change Just Came.”
“We were truly inspired by the stories we received from them, motivating us to help more schools under this program,” Ferro added.
The winners, who are all from the beneficiary schools of Epson’s Gift of Brightness Program, also received Epson Honor Roll Baon Package each as their prize.
Meanwhile, their respective schools have acquired Epson inks and ribbons which are useful for their donated Epson printers.
The Gift of Brightness Advocacy Program of Epson Philippines has already helped 30 schools across the country since its launching in December 2013. Epson is conducting another batch for selection within this year.
“We are focusing on selecting schools from areas that have yet to receive a similar donation, and we are working with partners from both the private and government sectors to help us complete this latest batch,” Ferro explained saying that more projects like the Honor Roll Essay Writing were likely happen so students will be inspired in their learning journey.
