Sun.Star Davao - - TOP STORIES - By Ace June Rell S. Perez

FOR­MER Sun.Star Davao ed­i­tor, now colum­nist Nel­son C. Ba­gaforo bagged this year's Si­nag: Sun Life's Fi­nan­cial Lit­er­acy Jour­nal­ism Awards for Min­danao.

Sun Life Fi­nan­cial Inc. rec­og­nized anew on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 6, at the Fair­mont Ho­tel, Makati City the vi­tal role of the jour­nal­ists in achiev­ing its goal of en­abling a fi­nan­cially lit­er­ate coun­try.

Other win­ners in­clude Ver­non Josef Go of The Free­man for Visayas and Daxim Lu­cas of the Philip­pine Daily Inquirer for Lu­zon. Each win­ner re­ceived P35,000 cash, plus a Sun Life Pros­per­ity Fund starter fund worth P5,000 and a tro­phy.

"Si­nag Awards is our way of hon­or­ing your ef­forts to boost fi­nan­cial lit-

er­acy in the coun­try through the sto­ries you write in your re­spec­tive pub­li­ca­tions. Your sup­port in this ad­vo­cacy re­mains as cru­cial as ever, as we strive to lead more Filipinos to­wards the path to fi­nan­cial free­dom," Sun Life said in a press state­ment.

Now on its 4th year, Si­nag Awards con­tin­ues to be a na­tion­wide com­pe­ti­tion, open to print jour­nal­ists and dig­i­tal in­flu­encers from Lu­zon, Visayas, and Min­danao.

"We wel­comed sto­ries that tackle sub­jects re­lated to fi­nan­cial lit­er­acy, such as en­trepreneur­ship, long-term fi­nan­cial plan­ning, stud­ies about the Filipinos’ fi­nan­cial habits, and up­dates about the mar­ket. These sim­ply need to be ed­u­ca­tional, in­spir­ing, and use­ful in help­ing Filipinos ap­pre­ci­ate the topic of fi­nances, the im­por­tance of money man­age­ment, and the ben­e­fits of fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity," Sun Life said.
