DLSU unveils finalists for 2024 Lasallian Scholarum Awards

DLSU Youth Beat

De La Salle University (DLSU) announces the finalists for this year’s Lasallian Scholarum Awards (LSA), an annual event recognizing outstanding media coverage of the youth and education sectors, which will be held on March 20, 2024 at DLSU Manila.

Focusing on the theme “Youth Beat,” the 19th LSA honors professional and student journalists whose outstanding works bring to light key issues affecting the country’s youth and education sectors. The theme highlights the youth’s voice saying: “This is who we are. This is our pulse. This is our beat.”

There are four LSA categories for the country’s journalists, with the winners to receive a one-of-a-kind Toym De Leon Imao sculpture. LSA also has a category for campus journalists.

In partnership with the Student Media Office, LSA will also feature the recipient of the Outstanding Media Personality, voted by DLSU campus journalists.

This year’s finalists are:
