STI Talent Search has made a grand return at the Enchanted Kingdom in Santa Rosa, Laguna

STI College, a premier educational institution, is dedicated to nurturing well-rounded, future-ready graduates. It achieves this by encouraging the holistic growth and development of its students through a wide range of co-curricular and extracurricular activities.


Among these initiatives is the longstanding STI Talent Search, which, for the School Year 2023-2024, has made a grand return at the Enchanted Kingdom in Santa Rosa, Laguna. This event serves as a platform to empower STI students and showcase their talents both within and beyond their academic pursuits.

"For 40 years, STI College has been nurturing students’ potential through academic and extracurricular activities. Consistently at the forefront of innovation, we provide our students with holistic learning and real-life experiences to help them become well-rounded individuals," said Ferdie T. Dantes, STI Assistant Vice President for Academics.


Over 22,000 students from various STI campuses across the country gathered for a full-day celebration of talents, skills, and achievements on January 25, 2024. 

Simultaneous competitions took place at the Enchanted Kingdom, featuring outstanding student musicians, dancers, heartthrobs, and darlings who vied for national titles in Singing Idol (solo singing competition), Battle of the Bands (band competition), Hataw Sayaw (dance competition), and the much-anticipated Search for Mr. and Ms. STI.


STIers also enjoyed a day filled with festivities and performances from celebrity guests and performers who participated in the event.  


The STI Talent Search is just one facet of the student programs lined up for the academic year, as the institution eagerly prepares to kick off the Second Semester with an array of exciting, network-wide educational activities.

The Second Semester will feature events such as the National Youth Convention (NYC), a youth convention that spans for more than a decade now where thousands of STI students nationwide expand their knowledge in their chosen fields straight from the industry professionals. 


Apart from NYC, STI College will also hold the annual Tagisan ng Talino (TNT) and Tagisan ng Sining (TNS), encompassing academic competitions like Think Quest (team quiz bee), CodeFest (mobile app development), Mix ‘n Flair (flair bartending), Travelogue (tour guiding), Chef Xpress (cooking competition), Shutter’s Best (photography), and Director’s Cut (short film), among others.
