CDA Students in the EU Whiz Finals

In my August 10 posting, our CDA students won in the first two sets of the European Union Competition elimination round held at De La Salle University. Joyce Sadiarin, Ian Agsalda, and Thomas "Beau" Dela Cruz topped the elimination round. Last August 18, 2006 they faced Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP), University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P), and University of the Philippines in the Final Round of this inter-collegiate quiz at SM Mega Mall in Mandaluyong City.

Ambassador Jan de Kok, Head of Delegation of the European Commission to the Philippines was there to explain why they created this activity (i.e. to make more people aware of the existence of the European Union). He also awarded the winners.

It was such a joy to see the energies of Joyce, Ian, and Beau. The CDA team, as you can see in the picture with Ambassador Jan de Kok (minus Mr. George Binay who was our "official photographer") were beaming with pride as to how our CDA students handled the intense pressure of the competition. Unlike in the elimination rounds, the Finals was a close match. In the end, our CDA students won second place with 8 points (tied with UA&P). PUP bagged the First Place with 11 points while UP-Diliman took the Third Place with 6 points. Congratulations to the CDA team and thanks to all who supported them!
