Meanwhile, the performance of the participants and judging for Pagbangon happened on the day of the awarding. Schools from Central Luzon attended the awarding including the participants, teachers, advisers, and deans from their corresponding schools.


The event culminated after the Editor-in-Chief of The Reflection, Mary Joyce Dizon, delivered her closing remarks, saying, “Gayunpaman, ang pokus ng Gawad Aninag ay ang bigyan ng pansin ang mga guro pagdating sa pagkakaiba nila sa bawat henerasyon ngunit may iisang layunin at syempre ay ang pagbibigay pansin sa mga pinagdadaanan ng mga guro, at kung ano ang nararapat para sa kanila.”


 Dizon also expressed her appreciation to the participating schools because they were with The Reflection in pursuing the advocacy of Gawad Aninag this year. After the awarding ceremonies, the participants were treated to light snacks and a tour of the Holy Angel University campus.
