Two teams from Camarines Sur Polytechnic Colleges (CSPC) emerged victorious from the recently concluded Academic Festival 2021 spearheaded by the Institute of Electronics Engineers of the Philippines (IECEP) Bicol Student Chapter.

The programming team composed of BS Electronics Engineering students Tom Jairus V. Portea, Jemar L. Perras, and Mike Anjoe F. Belda notches first place out of three other contenders.

“Masaya kasi sulit ang pagod,” said Belda when asked what he felt after the team won first place.

Additionally, Perras claimed that it was not easy at first since they encountered technical problems before the contest proper.

“Though there are difficulties encountered, but we came prepared naman,” he added.

The Programming Team of CSPC shall represent the Bicol Region in the upcoming IECEP National Programming Competition.

When asked what the team will do in the succeeding days in preparation for the national tilt, Belda said, “Balik sa dati review lang saka practice”.

On the other hand, the Interscholastic Quiz Show Team composed of Jay Mark S. Baynado, John Mark C. Borela, Jolena B. Nuñez, and Farah Faye P. Felices ranked 4th.
