DE LA SALLE UNIVERSITY (DLSU) is set to launch its 19th Lasallian Scholarum Awards (LSA), recognizing the outstanding media coverage of the youth and education sectors. 

The Lasallian Scholarum Awards is known as a yearly media recognition program where it awards both professional and student journalists for their outstanding youth and education narratives. 

Along with its focusing theme, “Youth Beat,” the event is set to happen on March 20 at The Venture, 4th floor, Henry Sy, Sr. Hall from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm. 

According to the university, “The merit-based awards program tapped an independent media-monitoring agency to scour youth and education stories from major print, broadcast, and online news organizations in the country.”

With its highlighted youth voice sayings, “This is who we are. This is our pulse. This is our beat,” the 19th LSA is to honor both professionals and student journalists whose works have greatly impacted the country’s youth and educational sectors. 

For the LSA awarding, four categories are set for the country’s journalists. Aside from honoring the country’s journalists, the LSA also had its category dedicated to campus journalists. 

The winners of the awarding are to receive a one-of-a-kind Toym De Leon Imao sculpture.
