HP Write and Read 2 Program

Last year, when HP started with the first Write and Read, our vision was simply, to inspire. We wanted to reach a handful of students and change how they perceive learning. This year, as we culminate the HP Write and Read 2, we realized that we have reached so much more, and we were able to share to more audience HP’s commitment to creativity, education and of course, learning,” says Franco Flameno, HP’s Marketing Development Manager for Consumer Printers. “HP is thankful to both partners—DepEd and our Write and Read ambassador, Efren Penaflorida, for believing in the HP vision, and agreeing to partner with us.”

Opened to First Year (or now called Grade 7) to 4th year high school students who are based in the National Capital Region, the student participants underwent a two-day master class in either poetry writing or illustration. Final contest entries were collaborative work between one writer and one illustrator who underwent the master classes

Learning is a personal advocacy. I believe that to passing over that love for learning is as important as of course using extremely attractive printed materials are important in nurturing students’ creativity in reading, writing and visual arts, and sustaining that interest,” said Efren Penaflorida , Write and Read ambassador and CNN 2009 Hero of the Year.
