The All-in-Place Table Setting Competition challenged students to demonstrate their proficiency in formal dinner arrangements and complex table scenarios. Meanwhile, the Worth the Whisk Cake Decorating Competition celebrated Filipino culinary heritage with a Filipino Dessert Extravaganza-themed cake.

General knowledge was put to the test in the Think Quest Team Quiz Competition, while programming skills shone in Codefest, a 36-hour mobile app hackathon hosted at STI College Ortigas-Cainta.

In the Stand Up and Deliver Speech Competition, contestants addressed the question, “How do challenges contribute to personal growth and development?” with insightful speeches. The Essay Does It! Essay Writing Competition saw aspiring writers embracing individuality to promote unity.

Tourism Management students captivated audiences with their guiding skills in Travelogue, taking them on a simulated journey to Fort Santiago in Intramuros, Manila.

Beyond Classroom Lessons

As a leading provider of quality education, STI College combines traditional learning, hands-on experiences, and character-building activities to prepare graduates for the future and nurture well-rounded individuals.

“The experience was thrilling,” said Caryll Del Rosario, 2nd Runner-up in the Travelogue competition. “I’m taking it as an opportunity for growth and better experience,” added the Grade 12 Tourism Operations student.
