The initiative, which was done in partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd), was opened for 1st to 4th year high school students based in the National Capital Region (NCR).

The contestants underwent a two-day master class either in poetry writing or illustration. The final contest entry was a collaborative work between one writer and one illustrator who underwent the master classes.

?When HP started with Write and Read 1, our vision was simply, to inspire. We wanted to reach a handful of students and change their perception about learning. As we culminate this year?s Write and Read 2, we realized that we have reached so much more and we have shared HP?s commitment to creativity, education and of course, learning to more students than we expected,? said Franco Flameno, HP?s marketing development manager for consumer printers.

This year?s winners include the following:

They took home the following prizes: First placers got two printers, two desktops, two notebooks, two slates, and P50,000 cash; Second placers won two printers, two notebooks, two slates, and P20,000 cash, and Third placers were given two printers, two slates, and P10,000 cash.
