BANGUED, Abra, June 2 (PIA) – Recognizing the power and importance of good information to the public, the Abra provincial government sponsored the conduct of a free Summer Seminar-Workshop on Journalism and Broadcasting for elementary pupils, high school and college students from May 24 to 27 at the Provincial Capitol Social Hall and Abra Radio 102.9 Peace FM Studio 2014.

Media has been an anchor of all Abrenios during the past years. It was noted how daily facts and information gathered and provided by media personnel especially in political proceedings and issues prompted reaction and social consciousness from all over the province.

Bersamin to bring out the youth from indifference and therefore produce outstanding and empowered individuals. “Journalism is very powerful. But it must be right. There are many aspiring young journalist in the province but they must be informed to only speak, write, and disclose of truth,” he said.

Resource persons were from GMA Ilocos, Philippine Information Agency – AbraInfocen, Radio Kabinnulig, and Abra State Institute of Sciences and Technology.

In her brief message, Dr. Maria Teresa B. Benas, PIA-AbraInfocen Manager emphasized the need for Gender-Fair Media in both print and broadcast as well as in the film industry in order to uphold the rights and dignity of women. (JDP/MTBB/GinalynBrioso – PIA CAR, Abra)

Bersamin: Fellowship Among Races

Bangued, Abra (PIO) – Hon. Eustaquio P. Bersamin launched the what he called “a covenant of conciliation and harmony” among Abra’s young citizens dubbed as R U the Best of the Youth 2016 during the Opening Program of the Free Seminar/Workshop on Journalism and Broadcasting which was conducted May 24, 25, 26 & 27, 2014 at the Provincial Capitol Building.

In the start of the educational forum, Mr Governor was quoted saying; “I urge all political leaders, the church, titular heads of public and private learning institutions and communities to establish fellowship among races”.  Bersamin believes that after the training, the children will be recognized and automatically accredited as reporters of eventualities in their respective communities. 

He applauded the media practitioners of their efforts in giving information to the people especially the young and enlightening them through education and communication.  He further pointed out that journalism and broadcasting would be part of building peace and truth.  He then signalled the young generations to be “bearers of peace”.

One hundred fifty (150) in-school youths attended the 4-day seminar workshop.  Six Municipalities were represented by elementary pupils and secondary students of the different learning institutions in the Province.  Among those who participated, majority of them were accompanied by teacher-trainers in social media in preparation of future press conferences of districts in the Department of Education, Division of Abra.
