TALKSHOP and National Capital Region QUIZ B 2010

One way to help students improve themselves is to empower them—to make them aware of their skills, talents, and abilities to effect positive contributions in the community. This is what TalkShop, a leading facility for English Communication and Personality Development, envisions—that such empowerment could make the students of today become better citizens of tomorrow.


With this in mind, TalkShop takes on yet another challenge to be the leading education partner in a national competition. In partnership with Rotary Club of Makati-Poblacion, Bigay Pagmamahal Scholars’ Organization, Rotaract of Sampiro, Education Department of Makati, STI, and the City Government of Makati under the leadership of Mayor Jejomar Binay, TalkShop brings the NCR QUIZ B 2010 caravan to the 15 Metro Manila divisions involving at least 300 private and public high schools.


The NCR Quiz B is an intellectual competition among the best and the brightest students from the secondary public and private high schools in the National Capital Region. It aims to provide a venue for students to develop camaraderie and brotherhood among themselves; give opportunities for students to represent their schools in a national competition; and inspire students to focus their attention on productive endeavors that hone their intellectual competence and leadership potentials.


Ms. Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO, leads the NCR Quiz B committee. On behalf of the Rotary Club of Makati Poblacion and Bigay Pagmamahal Scholars’ Organization, she spreads the good work started by Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay and continued under the stewardship of Councilor Jun Jun Binay. As the NCR Quiz B Lead Coordinator, Ms. Sheila Viesca does the rounds in the different schools division offices for the intra-division competitions. She has been the Quiz Master—substituted, in one instance, by Ms. Michelle Octaviano—since this competition started on January 19, 2010. The intra-division level will end on February 8; and consequently, all the first-placers will compete in the one-day-winner-take-all Grand Championship on March 12, 2010 in the University of Makati where special prizes await all winners and participants.


TalkShop believes in the empowerment of the youth, excellence in education, and integrity in leadership; and because of this, it continues to assist in worthwhile projects such as the NCR QUIZ B 2010.
