Aliyah Red T. Cadiz, ABM 12-1, bested 781 participants from 185 schools nationwide in the recently concluded Kingfisher ABM Cup 2022. The finals round of the quiz bee was held last April 1 and was livestreamed via the official Facebook page of Kingfisher ABM Organization.
“Honestly, I still can’t believe that I won second place for this is my first time joining a national-level competition alone, with no team or partner. I didn’t expect to win; with that many schools, and unfamiliar and intimidating faces,” Cadiz shared in an email interview.
Cadiz hurdled the two rounds of competitions with preparation and clear mindset. She shared her success with the people who tirelessly helped her for this competition: “I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to my family, Sir Noel Bergonia, and Kuya William Dalupang because without them, I don’t think I would achieve this.”
Prof. Noel Bergonia, Chairperson of the Department of Accountancy, served as Cadiz’s competition coach.
“Ranking in the Kingfisher ABM Cup 2022 shows that our students are well-equipped to attain academic excellence not only in the classroom but also in competitions outside of the school. I look forward to more wins of our SHS students in academic and non-academic events because I know that they will, and they can.”
Aside from Cadiz, other PUPians showcased their wit and excellence in the same competition. Jennelyn B. Capino and Carmela Dawn C. Maglantay joined Cadiz in the top 5 representatives for the National Capital Region (NCR), while Ilia Raine T. Santos and Tanya Gabrielle S. Tumambing secured spots as wildcard contestants. The eliminations round was held last March 28.
The quiz bee covered Fundamentals of Accountancy, Business and Management I and II, with special topics such as Retail and Gross Profit Method of Inventory Estimation, Financial Statements and Ratio Analysis, VAT Computations, Bank Reconciliation, and Depreciation.
The Kingfisher Cup is now on its fifth year. It is organized and sponsored by the Kingfisher ABM Organization, a youth-led group based in Dagupan City, Pangasinan.
