Eight high school students emerged victorious in The World Scholar’s Cup - Manila Round II last July 14-15, 2019 held at Southville International School and Colleges.  Three teams competed against competitive students from more than twenty schools around the country to surmount the race and eventually move to the global round.

The teams are composed of (Team A) Miguel Secuando, Esther Grace Pre, and Whischelle Ama, (Team B), Ann Margareth Tapac, Jacqueline Palo, and Jyde Matthew Gonzales, and (Team C) Angela Amor Balagon and Arielle Alejandrino.

SMC teams participated in four rigorous yet exciting challenges: Scholar’s Challenge, Scholar’s Bowl, Collaborative Writing, and Team Debate. All of them blazed with the following awards:

TEAM A:
Miguel Secuando (Gold Medalist -TOP Scholar and Global Round Qualifier)
Esther Grace Pre (Silver Medalist - Da Vinci Award and Global Round Qualifier)
Whischelle Ama (Silver Medalist - Da Vinci Award and Global Round Qualifier)

TEAM B:
Ann Margareth Tapac (Gold Medalist - Da Vinci Award, Silver Medalist – Team Scholar’s Bowl, and Global Round Qualifier)

The teams are set to conquer the global round this coming September 6-11, 2019 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Pasay City.Qualified scholars will have the chance to participate in the Tournament of Champions at Yale University in the United States.

The World Scholar’s Cup is created to cater a different taste of academic competitions and conferences; a celebration of the joy of learning, a tournament as rewarding for the team that came in last as the team that came in first, and an enrichment opportunity that motivated students not just to demonstrate their existing strengths but to discover new ones.

Different subject areas such as Special Area – Unsolved Mysteries, History – Neglected Histories, Social Studies – On the Edge of Society, Science – Enabling Technologies, Art & Music – Louder than Words, and Literature - Voices from the Margins were explored by the scholars.
