CMMA inducts LSGH folio into Hall of Fame
Catholic Mass Media Awards (CMMA) has inducted Luntiang Panulat, the official Filipino folio of La Salle Green Hills Grade School, a five-time recipient of the Best Student Organ Award, into its Hall of Fame.
The CMMA was founded in 1978 by the Archdiocese of Manila through the late Manila Archbishop Jaime Cardinal L. Sin to highlight the significant role of mass media in society and its pervasive influence in the lives of the people.
Themed Gifted to Give, the most recent 43rd edition recognized the hard work and commitment in the fields of print, radio, television, film, music, and advertising despite the risks and restrictions amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The institution received and deliberated on a total of 366 entries across 37 various categories.
“More than ever, this is the time to be vigilant and continue to be guardians of mass media,” said CMMA acting chairman and CNN Philippines chairman D. Edgard A. Cabangon.
During the virtual presentation and awarding ceremony, CMMA trustee and executive director Rev. Fr. Rufino C. Sescon Jr. announced Luntiang Panulat as one of two recipients of the prestigious CMMA Hall of Fame Award.
The Filipino folio, which has been recognized as the Best Student Organ for the Grade School Level for five years, serves as the vehicle for literary expression and original compositions of the pupils of LSGH.
