Tatak TESDA Video Making Contest

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) recognized inspiring videos that showcased the successful careers of technical-vocational (tech-voc) graduates.


The competition seeks to promote technical-vocational education as a way to further boost the skills of Filipinos and improve their chances of being employed.

“The video making contest aims to remove the stigma that is associated with tech-voc courses in the country. Through presenting success stories of graduates, we hope that we can inspire more Filipinos especially the young to pursue tech-voc education which could help them boost their competitiveness and lead them to a brighter future,” TESDA Director General Joel Villanueva said in his address.

The contest was divided into two categories namely individual category, wherein the competitors share their success stories and how tech-voc played a major role in improving their lives and school category in which tech-voc schools present a story of one of their graduates to showcase their success on providing education.

The entry sender for either the individual or school category must produce a two to three-minute video, taken at the workplace, and then uploaded in Facebook or Youtube.  The link should be submitted along with the official entry through the email to the TESDA Provincial Office and copy furnished the Office of the Director General through tataktesda@gmail.com.

The videos may be in the form of dramatization, storytelling, music video and other creative format.  The videos should answer the question:  How did TESDA transform your life?  The closing statement of the video should be: Ako si ______, sa TESDA, sumaya ang buhay ko.  Buhay n’yo, sasaya rin sa TESDA.”

The official entry form may be downloaded from the TESDA website (www.tesda.gov.ph).

The contest will have three levels: provincial/district, regional and national.   The top two entries (one for each category) for each province/district as determined by the respective provincial/district screening committees will be considered for the regional level of the competition.  In the same manner, the top two entries (one for each Category) for each region as determined by the respective regional screening committees will be considered for the national competition.
