All 13 Grace Christian Academy competitors bagged one or both awards in their two events in last February’s virtual monthly qualifying competition of the Primary Grades Forensic Conference for kindergarten to 5th grade.

All four competitors in kindergarten to 2nd grade won eight awards in all their two events and the 3rd to 5th graders won 15 awards, for a total of 23 awards in different events for the two divisions.

Congratulations to all GCA competitors who joined in any of the four monthly qualifying the competitions since October 2020. All of them won at least one or more awards, making them eligible or qualified to join the regional completion in April. Those who will join the regional competition are now preparing for the final competition.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, almost all of the events are pre-recorded video entries. The only live event for PGFC is Impromptu Speaking via Google Meet, during which only the competitors and judges can enter the live meeting.

PGFC competition encourages public and private school students from kindergarten 5 to fifth grade to participate in and become proficient in performing arts: reading, public speaking, and interpretation.

The administration, faculty and staff, and parents of Grace Christian Academy would like to extend their congratulations to the following winners who participated in this competition:
