NURSING senior Dan Erwin Bagaporo won first prize for his essay “Pride in Profession” in the youth category of the Goi Peace Foundation-United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) International Essay Contest last Oct. 27.

The annual contest, which had the theme, “My story of inspiration,” drew over 7,000 international entries.

“I think what made my essay stand out was that it was about people who are in need of compassion, namely, the elderly,” Bagaporo said.

Along with the first-prize winner in the children’s category, he will receive the Minister of Education Award in Tokyo, Japan on Nov. 19 as part of this year’s Goi Peace Foundation forum.

The Goi Peace Foundation was established in 1999 in Tokyo with the approval of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan. It was given the“official relationship status” by Unesco in 2006. Bernadette D. Nicolas
