World Bank Essay Results!

So...the finalists for the 2008 World Bank Essay Competition are now bound for that conference somewhere in South Africa. It was a good competition considering the number of entries that were passed. To tell you people the truth, I can’t still get out of my mind the fact that I’ve been one of the best 200s in the contest. (Yeepee!) The first time I’ve heard and tried to enter the contest, my entry was no more than a child’s idea and it soon evolved to something I can really be proud of. And one of these of course is my entry for this year. I am really happy for those chosen to contend in the final round and hope that the prize will go to the most deserving one. I salute also the writers from the Philippines who made it to the best 200:

Hello! Congratulations! Wow, your parents must be very proud of you. Is your essay posted anywhere here? I also noticed the name of Mariel Gabriel, she was my classmate in UP Diliman - College of Mass Communication.

Anyway, I think it is cool that someone as young as you are is spending time and energy writing about significant topics.

Thank you Ate!
Ah, I haven't posted the entry in here (too long,hehe).

But it's really good to know that Filipinos are not left behind in international events such as this one. =)

(And UP is one of the breeding place of the best of course.)

Salamat!

Haha, ate talaga!

I like your blog, by the way. The writer seems older and more mature than he is :P

You could further improve your articles' readability to send your message to a wider audience.

Keep it up! Cheers.~
