Panel of Judges


Dr. Maria Cecilia Genove

"What do I look for in a winning essay? Not much. So long as it is interesting; celebrates the good, the true, and the beautiful; and, brings a smile to my lips, then it is a sureball win!"


Dr. Anabel Alagasi-Wellms

" I look for an essay that strikes a balance between the "WHAT" and the "HOW," garnished with the "AHA!" of the material to sustain its readability. As the theme suggests, the dreams and aspirations of the writer as a teacher must be well-articulated following standards of good writing. Points to consider: the story, how it is written, and impact to the reader"


Dr. Lino Mondido

"I am after of a structured essay that is free from confusion. Thus, it must be persuasive, balanced, and arguments are fully supported with evidence."


Atty. Nelson Bandoles

"He/she should be able to convey his/her ideas in a vivid, concise, precise and logical manner."


Prof. Soren Kirchner

"I am looking for an essay which captures and leads my imagination and is convincing! An essay which proves a point without a shadow of a doubt!"
