Asked what contribted to their win, Ms. Sheila M. Allong, the adviser and coached answered:
“We focused on local scientific breakthroughs and researches, particularly those that were done by the Pisay scholars”.
“The recognition is a pat on the back for everyone who spent sleepness nights to come up with quality school paper on time. It means our hard work pays off and it encourages us to do to even better next time.” Ms. Allong added.
