Twenty-nine student journalists from Palawan will be sent to join the National Schools Press Conference (NSPC) set from January 28 to February 1 in Lingayen, Pangasinan.

Grace Estefano, information officer of the provincial office of the Department of Education (DepEd), said Thursday in a Kapihan hosted by the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) that the participants of the Palawan Division are from elementary and secondary levels.

Their training is being handled by their regional office.

“Kung sino ‘yong napili, ‘yon ang pupunta sa National Schools Press Conference. Bahala na si MIMAROPA region sa training ng mga bata at kasama ang mga coaches (The students who were chosen will be the one to attend the National Schools Press Conference. The MIMAROPA region will be the one to handle their training and their coaches will also go),” Estefano said.
