Congratulations and Round of applause to all the 6 teams who had worked hard along the competition period since the 1st Presentation on and gave their best in the Final Presentation.
Every proposal was very well thought, strong, and impressively clear in their own directions.
These ladies and gentlemen are the faces of the new generations that had proven to have courage in challenging themselves and thus, the ones who are brave enough to challenge the society. Thank you for being inspired and you have all inspired even the experienced professionals presented that day as well.
Being able to encourage such bright minds to communicate the world through their talents has proudly achieved one of the most important goals of the competition.
Thank you with our most appreciation to all Jury Panelist, Mentors, Showcase Contributors, Guests, Team, and everyone involved who believed in the project's potential that allowed it to happen as the way it has. Thank you for giving your priceless time and wisdom that were kindly shared with the new generations and also within ourselves.
On behalf of URDC Management Committee, we truly believe that the positive energy from 'the people' are the most powerful inspiration we could give to each other, but most of all, becoming friends are the greatest gifts one could possibly offer in life.
Nonetheless, we believe that there are still so many more seeds out there ready to be discovered and grow into big trees and together, sustaining this world as one.
The 1st Phase of the Project has just ended - so as the real journey is just about to start! Please Stay Tuned!
