The second place winners were Alan Joseph Luga and Ma. Jesusa Faustina Ortega of Makati Science High School, while third place went to Kyla Michal Cabatit and Anna Rominia Cruz of Miriam College High School.

SciComm is the first and only competition in the Philippines that aims to foster among students the skills needed for effective communication of scientific ideas. Following a pitch format, students are given only ten minutes to present effectively and substantially the content of a paper published in major scientific journals. Each team is composed of two graduating high school students and a coach.
