ISAW is an annual academic festival for Isabela schools, organized by the University of the Philippines Kalipunan ng mga Anak ng Isabela (UP KAISA). Centred on the theme “Anaraar: Pagbibigay-liwanag sa Papel ng mga Kabataan sa Pagtamo ng Pagbabago at ng Progresibong Kinabukasan,” its 23rd edition is composed of the contests Quiz Show, Essay Writing, Pagsulat ng Sanaysay, Poster Making, Extemporaneous Speaking, Dagliang Talumpati, Debate, Short Film Making, and Cultural Show.
INHS secured its third consecutive ISAW championship in the junior high school (JHS) level, this time, beating 42 other schools. The oldest public high school in Cagayan Valley reasserted its excellence with a whopping 74 points for its overall score this year. This is almost twice the score of second placer Cauayan City National High School-Main with 39 points, and of third placer Roxas National High School with 38. INHS sealed podium finishes in four out of the seven exclusive contests for JHS, making its performance the best across levels in the 23rd ISAW.
ISAW first-timer ISU-E overcame returning schools when it grabbed the top spot in senior high school (SHS) level, earning 61 points. Last year’s SHS champion University of La Salette, Inc. bagged the second place with a close 60 points, while Regional Science High School for Region II ranked third with 51. A record 45 institutions joined in the SHS level.
Meanwhile, AMECI proved its supremacy among the 22 participating elementary schools with its 22 total points. Santiago East Central School followed closely with 21 points, while Ilagan South Central School and Santiago Cultural Institute shared the third spot with 18 points each.
