FTTS Director Zafren Elen said of the 22 students who took the ICAS exam for Mathematics last August 16, 2014, nineteen have emerged as awardees on three categories – distinction, credit and merit awards.

Distinction awardees are those who belong to the Top 10% of all examinees; credit awardees are in the Top 25% and those in the Top 45% merit awardees.

The annual event aims to discover young talents in journalism in eight

different categories, namely: Sports Writing, News Writing, Feature Writing, Copy Reading and Headline Writing, Editorial Writing, Science and Technology Writing, Editorial Cartooning and Photojournalism.

Elen said 39 elementary schools and 33 high schools participated in that citywide competition.
