    “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.”
    The HP Write and Read 2 program was opened to 1st to 4th year high school students based in the National Capital Region (NCR). The contestants underwent a two-day master class either in poetry writing or illustration. The final contest entry was a collaborative work between one writer and one illustrator who underwent the master classes.
