THE UNIVERSITY bagged 21 awards in the 8th Philippine Student Quill Awards, which recognizes exemplary communication-related works by students from all over the country.

The Varsitarian, UST’s 93-year-old official student publication, won eight awards.

The ‘V’ received citations for its 21st Inkblots, 5th UST National Campus Journalism Awards, VSports infographics and V Exclusives, among others.

UST-Angelicum College also produced four winning entries including the short film “Playground,” personal documentaries “Raketera” and “Family Picture,” and a music video against mental health stigma titled “Speak Up!”

The Tiger Media Network, Tomasian Media Circle and Talents (TOMCAT) and students from journalism and communication programs also won awards.

The UST Minecraft team bagged an award for its recreation of the University’s 21.5-hectare campus in the sandbox video game.

The Philippine Student Quill is the junior division of the prestigious Philippine Quill Awards, which recognizes private corporations and government organizations that excel in communication.

Organized by the Philippine chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators, the Student Quill follows a rigid seven-point scoring system set by the International Gold Quill Awards, which are given to top corporations across the globe.

The winners will be recognized in a virtual awards night in March 2021.
