After two years of hiatus since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, UP Aguman brings back the most prestigious academic competition in Pampanga. Throughout the years, The Pautakan by UP Aguman has served as an avenue for participating Kapampangan students, from elementary to high school, to showcase their brilliance in a set of battles of knowledge and strategy. This competition also instills in students a competitive yet friendly spirit at a young age.
Carrying the theme “Lakdat: King Marangleng Dalan, Manganinag ya ing Bayung Kabiasnan,” The Pautakan 2022 aims to prepare Kapampangan students in setting out to blaze their trail in society as they recognize their prowess as youth.
Three years ago, Pautakan ended with a historic win from the University of Assumption (UA) as they emerged victorious in the Junior High School Division and brought home the highly coveted Oblê trophy for good after accomplishing a three-peat.
This year, other schools intend to carve their path to be the champion in each division and get a hold of the new revolving trophy, a replica of the UP Oblation statue. Witness the intense battle and discover who will succeed at Chevalier School, Angeles City on November 19 for the Elementary Division and on November 26-27 for the Junior High School Division.
Duly recognized and accredited by the Office of Student Affairs of the University of the Philippines Diliman, UP Aguman is a socio-civic, not-for-profit, service-oriented organization of Pampango-speaking students based in the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City.
