KSearch Partners Anew with Lyceum of the Philippines University for 7th Annual Oratorical Competition

KSearch and the College of International Relations of the Lyceum of the Philippines University collaborated again to hold the English Language Oratorical Contest, now on its 7th edition. The contest serves as a vehicle to promote the proficiency in the English Language among the youth with the Lyceum University as a staging ground.  The ultimate objective is to create awareness of how crucial effective communication would be in the students’ later working careers.


With eight finalists last Monday, 10th February, the topic given by the organizers of the competition was simply that about the Philippine President, Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III – how they see or assess the man and his presidency.  


The KSearch’s CEO, Mr. Manuel Guillermo, in his opening remarks posed the questions “ Is our President a leader or is he not a leader?  Is he, however, a manager?  Or even better, is he both a leader and a manager? “


The board of judges, chaired by Mr. Guillermo, was composed of Mr. Glen Sartillo—Chairperson for Foreign Languages and International Trade; Ambassador Alfredo Almendrala—Chairperson for Politics and Governance; Mr. Francisco Varona—Professor of World History and International Political Economy; Mr. Jayson Barlan—Chairperson for English Department.


The finalists seemed to have settled on a common ground.  Perceived selective governance, dubious inclusive growth and the somewhat wayward direction of the administration’s campaign toward “Tuwid na Daan” or Straight Path were prominently cited by practically all the speakers.  


Ms. Michelle Manese, a Broadcasting major from the College of Arts and Sciences was declared Champion of this year’s oratorical contest, who received a trophy and the PHP15,000 cash prize. The second and third places went to Jennifer Cases and Laurice Cuyugan, receiving their trophies and Php10,000 and Php8,000, respectively.  


It must have been a thrilling experience for the finalists.  Just for the invaluable experience alone of having participated as finalists in this  coveted competition, they are clearly all winners!
