Since its inception in 1995, the STI National Youth Convention has tackled countless topics that gave STI students nationwide the latest in the ICT industry. From its simple beginnings to its expansion into a nationwide event, what was once known as the National IT Convention has now evolved into the National Youth Convention. This year, Travel & Tourism and Business Management students will also benefit from this two decade nationwide event as three topics in those fields will be added to ensure that each STI’er can inculcate the lifelong learning skills essential for productivity and competitiveness in the job market which is one of the objectives of the NYC. The same formula of inviting industry practitioners will surely help STI students get more knowledge in this amazing roadshow presentation.
This year, the NYC gives its students something to look forward to again as the theme of the NYC helps make STI students emulate what STI alumni have done – become STI Heroes through their distinguished accomplishments. There are a lot of STI Alumni who are now doing well in their chosen field may it be in ICT, the Travel and Tourism industry or even in the field of Business. These alumni were molded by STI to be job-ready and life-ready and they used their STI experience to do stand out in their chosen field. They are the STI Heroes. These heroes is what STI wants it future graduates to be thus the challenge to every STIer is to Be the Hero! Be STI! The theme Mission Possible Operation STI Heroes captures the essence of the NYC’s objective to mold STIer’s to one day become STI Heroes.
