UPV Tacloban College student among the finalists in the 2017 Search for Outstanding Accounting Students of the Philippines (SOASP)
A graduating BS Accountancy student from the Division of Management of the University of the Philippines Visayas Tacloban College (UPVTC) was among the top 25 finalists in the 2017 Search for Outstanding Accounting Students of the Philippines (SOASP).
Kim D. Limosnero was named as among the top 25 SOASP finalists following a highly-competitive screening process earlier this year, which was participated in by over 350 students from more than 70 accountancy schools nationwide.
Limosnero, along with his coach Prof. Emma R. Evangelista, competed with 24 other accounting students from different parts of the country during the grand finals held at the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) Conference Center last December 1, 2017. He was awarded with a cash prize of P5,000 and a plaque of recognition for being part of the top 25.
Ellis Louise Lansangan from Holy Angel University (HAU) placed first in the grand finals, followed by Joshua Rusit from the Imus Institute of Science and Technology (IIST) and Juan Miguel Mallare from New Era University (NEU).
Now on its 19th year, the SOASP is an annual nationwide competition sponsored by the Puningbayan & Araullo (P&A) Foundation, in partnership with the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) and the Association of Certified Public Accountants in Commerce and Industry (ACPACI). “It aims to identify the best and brightest accountancy students in the country, with most candidates emerging as CPA board placers,” according to the organizers.
