According to the DepEd academic contests should be done at the school/division level to avoid disruption of classes. Teachers should focus on classroom instructions to improve the performance level of pupils in all learning areas. The 180 contact days should really be followed.

The registration fee for national level contests are too expensive. The MOOE of schools is not enough to finance the contestant and coach in case they win in the contest.

May I know why the Deped allows this?

You are right, registration fees are too high

i attended this activity twice...the activities are disorganized, no judges in some of the contest and winners were announce???? the registration is so expensive that it seems its just a moneymaking activity for "those" who are involved.hope deped will look into this.

May we hear from the organizers of this activity? It's true activities are disorganized, Also accommodation is not good even the food served is not good. This is a money making activity.

Until now Fruit Godoy is the President? Ilang years ba ang term niya?

Mura na yan..dito nga sa region 8 4200 reg fee reg'l science fair for only 2 days...prang nghotel na kmi sa five star hotel sa price..

May i ask if the contest in Improvisation of Materials (Teachers' Category) is still included? It is not in the memo but we had a contest in our region.

What is the real schedule? Is it Feb 3-5? or Feb 10-12??

hello po! pano po kaya kami makakasali sa national hanggang district lang po kami. d po natuloy ang aming division level dahil wala daw po regional at d daw po sasali ang aming region 3. sayang naman po ang aming paghahanda at gastos. pwede po ba yun. ty po.

balita ko po maraming hindi sasama national science quest dahil hindi po naging maganda ang 8th national science quest bakit po nangyayari ito. wala po ba naging meeting o evaluation after the event para po mas mapagbuti ang susunod at ma advise ang mga region na sumaali pa din.sayang naman po kasi napakagandang experience to sa mga bata na maipakita nila ang kanilang kakayahan manalo man o matalo at makasalamuha ang ibang mga kabataan. advice lang po kung mamarapatin, dapat po ay maalam ang mga judges sa guidlines at lagyan sila ng bantay dahil madami po ang nadadala sa kanilang emosyon na nagiging violent pag hindi napipigilan at nakakalimutan na kung ano ang tama. mabuhay po kayo!!! sana po ay tuloy tuloy ang ganitong mga event para sa mga kabataan na pag-asa ng bayan.

pakireply lang po sa mga post para naman maging functional ang blog na e2.

well maybe they don't have the luxury to reply or bother to know the feelings of the concern. That's the way it is. smile

I agree to most of the comments here, we experienced the same in Laguna... gustuhin man po namen sumali ulet, nkakawalang gana namang magprepare, kung walang sasagot sa mga comments n nandito, maybe we'll have same experience sa Bagiuo. Scientific approach in money making.. LOL

Sali po kami, ang saya ng Science Quest, Sarap sa Baguio!

Na move po ba sa Feb 10-12?

bakit nakalagay po dito sa DepEd memo Feb.3-5 2012??ang pagkakaalam po namin Feb.10-12 2012...nakaprepare na po kmi ng mga plane tickets namin papunta ng manila sa Feb.8..sana po mag response naman kayo kung anu talaga ang exact date ng contest...salamat po...see you at baguio city...GO SOUTH COTABATO REGION 12!!....

wala pairng nagbago!!!! bulok prin ang sistema... lalo na sa SIM elementary... pinagmukha lng nmn kming tanga... una: hindi pinakilala ang mga board of judges; pangalawa: hindi nagset ng rules and regulations, pinag-isa p ang grade 5 at 6, then grade 3 and 4.... hindi man lng nmin nalaman kung bkit hindi kmi nanalo, walang comments and suggestions ung papersnamin... hindi rin kmi na interview ng mga judges.... maraming nagprotest!!! bulok prin ang sistema ng ASEP!!!! paano yan madadala sa kongreso!!!! NO TO ASEP!!! ayusin nyo muna ang bulok ninyong sistema...

bulok talaga ang systema! worst national event na nasalihan ko..sa sci-dama, sa hallway kami naglaro..wala mn lang naprovide na tables & chairs para sa players..sa sahig lng kami..ang mga players halos nagsusuntokan na kc walang briefing at klarong rules..ang mga officials kulang at walang maxadong alam sa game..ginawang katatawanan ang lahat!
maraming players and di tinatapos ang laro..kaya maraming nanalo na hindi nmn tlaga legit winners..
i feel pity tlaga sa lahat! moneymaking lng ang lahat!

G. at Bb. Kalikasan search was the worst pageant I've ever known. Nagsimula sa mahahabang speeches ng mga aspirants ng asep partylist at 8pm, at natapos at nadeclare ang mga winners at 4am d next day, sabado na!!! wow!!! pan guiness book of world record - d longest run pageant!!! d constestants came from afar . . . and spent much . . . hindi kaya nagkapalitan names pag tabulate? . . . buti pa regional search namin, maayos and the result was credible. d crowned bb. kalikasan (elem private level) didn't do a catwalk for her casual attire at siya ang nanalo . . . d worst nababad sa lamig ang mga bata. nakabackless ba naman hanggang las 4 ng umaga sa lungsod ng baguio . . . omg!!! sec. luistro pls pakitingnan naman itong mga pangyayari sa science national quest. mga comments of previous years walang kasagutan. sa mga organizers . . . ur theme focused on the advancement of science and technology . . . subalit napakabagal ng inyong technology. money making nga lang siguro ito at naisahan tayo . . . ilabas kaya natin sa media, sa kapuso or kapamilya!!!

Oo sobrang Dayaan ang nagyari dalawa yung lumabas na tabulation for Ginoo at Bb. Kalikasaan in Public Elementary in the 9th National Science Quest isang totoo at isang niluluto ng tabulation results ang lumabas yung commitee for tabulation kaya sila inabot ng umaga sa kakatabulate dahil sa nahihilo na din sila sa kakaluto..Nakakahiya sila best in interview yung hindi nakasagot sa question and answer then hindi pa tapos yung tabulation me winner na agad..NAKAKAHIYA...Saka ano kinalaman ng mga pare sa Fashion???? Nagkakagulo na sa Hall ng Benetiz yung mga Judges deadma lang palibhasa bayad na sila pwede naman gawan ng unanimous decision yung winners and runners up inabot pa ng 4:00am kakaloka na show 7:00PM start natapos 4:00AM to proclaim the winners... send ko po yung links ng dalawang tabulation results malalaman nyo po lahat lahat ng dayaan....

Wala ba sa bb. kalikasan na tabulation? sa ginoo lang yung link . . . true ba na ang bb. kalikasan elem level (private) hindi naksagot interview, and unang tinawag ms intelligence sa binibini (public elem) ay hindi rin nakasagot at dun na nagsimula ang delay ng announcement of awards coz d audience shouted boooooo !!! nakakahiya naman . . . walang credibility . . . talent daw ay 3mins lang, pero marami ang nagperform ng higit pa sa 3mins, & ok lang sa committee? ano ba yan? no clarity on guidelines . . . true ba na hanggang 4am ang contest? paano yung mga may costume na bareback or sleeveless? napakawalang puso naman ng mga taong ito na hinayaan ang mga bata sa ganoong kasuotan sa lugar ng napakalamig na baguio, bukod pa sa puyat at pagod na inabot hanggang 4am!!! victim ang mga bata pati parents na nanggaling pa sa malalayong region at gumastos ng malaki just to join this contest. ASEP officials are once classroom teachers (before they bear d title of Ph,D) who inculcated good moral values to pupils, saan na ang mga values na itinuro nila sa mga bata sa pangyayaring ito. DepEd should conduct an assessment and evaluation on the peformance sa mga taong namahala ng 9th National Science Quest. Sana sa 10th National Science Quest (kung meron pa), it should be handled by more competent officials.

Dr. Fruit Gudoy magcomment ka naman!!! Defend yourself kung mali ang mga comments na ito!!!

grabe ang search ng G. at BB. ng Kalikasan! National competition ba yun? Nakakatawa kc di nila inorganize yung event,,kawawa naman mga bata dahil inabot ng 4am..halata namang may dayaan! ang mali lng namin di na i record yung kaguluhan para na i media sana...Ultimo chairman of the board gusto i invalid ang pageant dahil naramdaman nyang may dayaan hahaha...at naman! kung sino man ang nag assign sa emcee...hello!!national event po iyun ,,bakit ang emcee parang nagbabasa lng ng slumbook!hayyyyy!!!bulok mga taga ASEP

As far as I am concerned, this is the best National Science Quest na nangyayari. Magandang tulugan and masarap na food. Isang event man lang ang may problem, the rest maayos naman.

Huwag nyo namang e judge ang full round of events sa isang glitch. Maayos naman ang iba. CONGRATULATIONS DR. FRUIT GUDOY. I am from Region 12.

ang sci-dama competition ang gulo..sa hallway nilaro tpos wala mn lng tables & chairs...may mga hindi legit players..kahit hindi regional winners nakalaro sa national..too bad..
& guess wat ano ang pinakamagulong category?
Teachers' & Parents' Category"...wat a shame...halos nagsusuntokan at maraming nandadaya...eh kasi
1) walang briefing..
2) walang clarification of rules
3)walang pairings
4)walang tally of results
5)at walang direct officials na marunong maghandle ng conflicts
6) ang mga players nlng nagoorganize ng kani-kanilang sariling laro..grabe saan ginasto ang nacollect na registration fee?..

to the blogger from region 12, may i know what was d event na maayos cos almost all of the events had no clarity in guidelines. siguro declared winner ka, and mind you almost everybody felt results were not credible . . . and not legit winners . . . sayang ang mga effort. di na sana kami dumalo.

d purpose d deped created ds blog is to air out comments for betterment and improvement tungo sa tuwid na daan. but look d comments were way back august 2011, and nobody from deped cared to look into this to refute. bakit pa nila ginawa ang blog page na ito???

Well, I was also in Baguio, and I heard that some contests were disorganized especially the Search for G. and Bb , and also the Sci- Dama Competition. Kawawa talaga ung mga players, imagine nakalupagi lang sa sahig, di na rin siguro sila nakaconcentrate sa games... Ang nakita kong maganda ung process ay ung SIM for Teachers. The best ung mga judges...talagang dumaan sa butas ng karayum ang mga contestants.. mahirap ang pinagdaanan nila, ung pagpprepare n lang ng SIM, grabe na un and then dumaan ka pa sa selection of the top 10 qualifiers, sobrang hirap... after that may interview p ng mga judges for oral defense.. sobrang scary... di lang labanan ng SIM, labanan din ng Action Research... Yan ung contest... paghihirapan mo talaga para makasama ka sa TOP 5. Pero sana lahat ng Top 10 qualifiers nirecognize.. di kc ganun kadali ung contest na un e.. pawis at dugo ang puhunan dun...

grade nmang makapag comment ang iba Bb. at G. Kalikasan lang nman ang disorganized ang SIM at IP ay ok nman.

Kahit n kelan talagang disorganized n ang management ng ASEP eh kung s SIP teachers category lng nga eh favoritism na. imagine, mismo ang mga offices ng ASEP nag join p s contest, sana nman for Delicadisa lng give way and give chance to others. kung c Godoy p rin ang Pres. wag n kyo magsali ulit ginaperahan lng tayo. ang laki ng gastos ntin tpos Natl contest ganyan ang nangyyari? ang certificate 1/2 sheet lng ordinary bond paper.... oh come on....Happy k Godoy eh....65

ay hindi po totoo yan na pati officer ng asep eh kasali kc po national, regional at division supervisor po yong mga iyon. kc kasali din po ako sa sip at sim bale ako po ang unang nag ask sa kanila regarding that matter di po sya officer nagkataoon lang na nakadamit sila ng asep kc sila po ang participant from asep regional chapter. ang asep regional chapter po ng buong pilipinas ay may entry din po nakalagay yan sa memo at TOR at pinaliwanag din po yan sa briefing ng bawat category. ako po kahit natalo eh talagang ok nman ang kanilang entry kaya sa susunod aayusin ko na lang at paghahandaan ang ganyang competition.

ay oo nga....nadoon ako at isa ako sa mga nagreklamo tungkol sa mga participant na naka damit ng ASEP. kinausap nmin ang buong organizer ng ASEP at ipinaliwanag nila ang lahat. so naliwanagan kami kc may mga indorsement sila ng kanilang entry at list of entries ng iba pa. kaya nga kahit nag 5th place ang entry ko talagang maganda ang entry nila kaya sila ang nanalo. siguro sa susunod matuto kang mag tanong kse wala nmang masamang magtanong. next ASEP Competition lalaban uli ako kitakits uli tayo at pagbubutihin ko pa. kaya sa mga nanalo hintayin mo nyo ang project ko.

we were also participants of this contest for sip and were so disappointed. walang judges for the competition pero may winner. the worst contest i ever joined.truly a money making contest. sana mahiya naman ang mga organizers ng ganitong contest puro pera lng ba ang mahalaga?
