The 23rd Isabela Socio-Cultural Awareness Week (ISAW) invites elementary and secondary schools in Isabela to join its online activities this January and February for chances of bringing home medals, plaques, and certificates and representing the province in the national level, the Patalasanlahi.
ISAW is the primary event of the University of the Philippines Kalipunan ng mga Anak ng Isabela (UP KAISA) in promoting social and cultural consciousness among the Isabeleño youth.

This year’s ISAW will still be held online via Zoom, Facebook, and Discord with the theme: “Anaraar: Pagbibigay-liwanag sa Papel ng mga Kabataan sa Pagtamo ng Pagbabago at Progresibong Kinabukasan” which aims to highlight the critical role of the youth in bringing effectual change and progress in our society.

And so, we are thrilled to present the 23rd ISAW as we chase and witness together the first appearance of light at the break of dawn,” said the event heads, Eulyka Larugal and Kate Serna.
