MANILA, Philippines - For the second year, the University of the Philippines System Christian Alumni Association International (UPSCAAI) has chosen The Philippine STAR as one of three outstanding newspapers for 2012.
UPSCAAI founder and president Norberto Mercado said The STAR was cited for outstanding journalism after meeting the three criteria set by the organization – positive impact of the newspaper on the spiritual life of the Filipino through its news, features, and commentaries; fairness in the publication of articles; and holistic developmental influence or contribution to the nation.
STAR associate editor Marichu Villanueva received the recognition during the awarding last Saturday at the UP-Ayala Land Technohub in Quezon City.
Other awardees were the Manila Bulletin and the Manila Times.
