My nose bled in judging the best of the best outputs of students from all over the Philippines last March. The Bureau of Fire Protection gathered all entries of high school students in drawing, essay writing and poster making contests on fire safety in relation to the observance of Fire Prevention Month.
In the final judging, four of us, judges, selected the best three for each category one afternoon at SM North EDSA in Quezon City. The entries were focused on 2014's theme of the country's fire prevention month obsevance: "Isulong and kaunlaran, sunog ay iwasan; kaalaman at pag-ingat ang kailangan."
The photographs here are some of the students' winning entries. These masterpieces now form part of the property of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP). The student winners all received cash prizes from the BFP.
