In celebration of the World Space Week 2017, the Bedan Society of Young Astronomers (BSYA), a senior high school organization of San Beda Manila, in collaboration with the Judenite’s Astronomical Organization (JAO), a senior high school and International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) organization of Saint Jude Catholic School, hosted a Space Quiz Friendly Competition which is aimed at Senior High School Students based on themes around space science and astronomy, with a special emphasis on space exploration. The culminating activity for this event is a free telescope viewing, courtesy of the Manila Street Astronomer (MSA).

The objective of the competition is to contribute to the improvement of awareness, interest, understanding, and insight into the space sciences and basic astronomy; and to celebrate the participation of different senior high schools in World Space Week so as to foster the interest of career opportunities in astronomy and space sciences.

The competition which was held at 8:00 A.M.-2:00 P.M. on October 7, 2017, Saturday at the Abbot Lopez Hall of San Beda Manila.

This competition, in which we thoroughly planned for over 2 months was a huge success. Aside from the fact that there were more than 10 schools present at the said event, the World Space Week 2017 was also able to recognize this event officially. In the end, the Philippine Science High School - Main Campus, emerged as the champion for this space quiz. 

The JAO is an organization that I have found last year.
