Award-winning Cebu website a school project at UP High

The winning website:

A blessing in disguise.

This is how the 63 high school students of the University of the Philippines described their victory in an international website design contest....

Honeylyn Balingcasag, incoming computer science (Comsci) freshman at the UP College Cebu, explained that they were supposed to submit their class project to a national website competition.

But they were not able to beat the deadline because the computer in the school bogged down.

"We were not able to join the national competition because of technical problems so we took a chance and participated in the international contest," said Balingcasag, who acted as project coordinator of the group.

Little did they know that the technical glitch was a blessing in disguise.

Their design for "Calles de Cebu: Gateway to a Nation's History" won second place and got the gold award in the historical landmarks category of the International Schools Cyberfair 2006 competition held last May 17 in San Diego, California, USA.

The contest, which is on its 11th year, was participated in by schools in 52 countries.

Computer Professor Renante Manlunas explained that Cyberfair is a research contest with website design as part of the contest criteria. The contest involves all sectors in the community.

It was Manlunas who required his two classes -- 63 graduating high school students -- in November 2005 to come up with a joint project.

Manlunas was aware of the international competition. He told his two classes that their project -- a website design -- would become the school's official entry in the competition.

"It was hitting two birds with one stone," said Ranyah Dawn Dablo, then class valedictorian and now incoming accountancy freshmen at the University of San Carlos.

"At first, we were forced to make the project because we were being graded but later we realized that it was more than the grades. The pride of winning in an international competition is far greater," she added.

Recognizing the project as their class effort before their graduation, the two sections put their acts together.

One section worked on the streets in Cebu while the other concentrated on the festivals in Cebu Province.

"The challenge was really in organizing the students. In terms of management, the students’ number was really too big (63 students)," Manlunas said.

Problems on logistics also posed a challenge especially that information on the streets was not readily available.

Students scanned old books, visited public libraries and study centers, and talked to experts.

“To (ensure) the smooth flow of the project, we created the core group composed of five people in each section," said then council president Nasvin del Rosario.

Del Rosario, also an incoming UPCC Comsci freshman, said the core group was responsible for delegating the tasks to the concerned students and consolidating the data gathered.

The group members found themselves driven and inspired. As they went deeper into research, they found the need to be informed about Cebu's cultural heritage.

"It is so ironic that we are from Cebu and yet we don't know who Junquera, Colon or Gorordo are," said Daramae Maningo, also an incoming Comsci freshman at UPCC.

The contest theme "Inspire and Unite" also encouraged the students to contribute something to the Cebuano culture.

All of those involved in the project have graduated -- a third of them were honor students. Seventy percent of them are incoming freshman students at UP.

"Cannot open website. Operation aborted."
