This time, Colgate Philippines is putting more premium to life-changing benefits.
Instead of dangling cash prizes that can be spent right away, Colgate found it more noble to award P5 million support to Filipino students in the promo aptly named Colgate Scholarship Promo 2018.
Colgate awarded P100,000 each to 50 winners who nominated their selected students. Now their education—and future-is now secured.
The youngest beneficiary from the Colgate Scholarship promo is three-year-old Amari from Cayagan, joining the likes of Noria, a 15-year-old student from Bulacan and Julianna, a twelve-year-old student from Binangonan, Rizal.
Cebu’s Jojo Calapuan and Sidney Lanete from Davao City nominated their children to benefit from the scholarship prize.
As a culminating event, Colgate gathered some of the winners from Luzon for an awarding ceremony and a day full of fun and exciting activities at The Mind Museum in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
The scholars and their families explored the amazing exhibits at the museum and were treated to a spectacular Science Show to inspire the children to keep on learning and aim for a brighter future.
Also present at the event were a few of the 2016 and 2017 winners of the Colgate Scholarship Promo. “Masaya po ako na nanalo ako ng scholarship mula sa Colgate (I am happy that I won a scholarship grant from Colgate),” 11-year-old Vince, Colgate Scholarship Promo 2016 scholar, said. “Mas ginanahan po akong pumasok sa paaralan para abutin ang pangarap kong maging pulis balang-araw (I became more excited to go to school in order to achieve my dream of becoming a policeman someday).”
This year’s Colgate Scholarship Promo received approximately 174,000 entries, registering its highest number of entries per day in the promo’s three-year run. Aside from the grand prize of P100,000 in scholarship money, Colgate also gave away P500 National Book Store gift certificates to 500 winners and P15 Prepaid Load to 5,000 winners.
