STUDENTS from the Philippine Science High School Eastern Visayas campus bagged several awards in two different international competitions.

Frances Canicon won first prize in the Japan Super Science Fair: Science Discussion Event held at the Ritsumeikan Junior and Senior High School in Japan earlier this month.

Themed “Infectious Disease”, the event provided high school students from all over the world who seek to become scientists and engineers the opportunity for scientific exchange.

“At Ritsumeikan’s 20th annual Science Fair, it is our desire that you get a strong sense of mission to make active contributions to the world, a valuable network of cooperation across countries, and a big dream to be active for the future,” the JSSF said on its website.

Canicon was mentored by Numeriano Amer Guitterez.

Meanwhile, three students from the same campus received recognitions in the International Model United Nations organized by the University of Asia and the Pacific.

Alchris Maria Ceballos won the Best Delegate Award of the World Health Organization, while Joshua Christopher Capada received a Verbal Commendation from the United Nations Development Program.

On the other hand, Kyle Matthew Balasanos was also recognized with a Verbal Commendation by the United Nations Scientific, Educational and Cultural Organization.

They were coached by Emman Patata.
