RHEPC 2022; TST ranks 4th best performing pub

The Soil Tiller, the official student publication of Bulacan Agricultural State College, ranked as the 4th Best Performing Student Publication amongst 26 universities in Region III during the 20th Regional Higher Education Press Conference (RHEPC) held on May 5 to 7. 

 

The event which was organized by the Association of Tertiary School Paper Advisers of Region III (ATSPAR III) Inc. in collaboration with the Commission on Higher Education Central Luzon-Regional Office III having its comeback after it halted when the pandemic came bore the theme “Traversing the Next Decade of Campus Journalism”

 

Melanie Hizon, Editor-in-Chief of TST mentioned on an interview that the publication’s performance exceeded their expectations.

 

“Higit sa inaasahan ‘yung naging outcome ng pagpupursigi ng bawat isa kahit sa maikling panahon ng training. Bukod sa mahubog ang bawat manunulat na pinili namin para lumaban at matuto, naroon yung pangarap ko para sa The Soil Tiller na umangat sa buong Gitnang Luzon —pero hindi ko inasahan na ngayon na maisasakatuparan ito,” she explained.

 

Meanwhile, Raphael Policarpio, Head Layout Artist of TST who won 1st place in Infographics (Filipino) and 2nd place in Layouting leave an advice for the aspiring lay out artists.

 

“Hindi lang sa kaalaman sa mga application ang layouting, marunong dapat ang yong mga mata na tumingin ng magagandang design.” Policarpio further explained that even on a candy wrap an idea for layouts can be found.

 

Moreso, Jayson Ocampo, senior staff writer of TST won the first price in “Pagsulat ng Tula.” 

 

“Nagulat ako nang bigla nalang nagsigawan mga kasama ko kasi hindi ko na masyadong nakita yung nakasulat sa screen nung nag-announce na ng top 1. Nung nag sink-in na sa’kin na ako talaga yung nanalo ay sobrang saya,” Ocampo said.

 

The event was composed of different writing contests as well as graphics and designing related categories.
