The National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), through the Executive Council of the National Committee on Historical Research (NHCR), announced the results of the Young Historian’s Prize 2013.

The awarding ceremony, which will be held at The Bayleaf Hotel in Intramuros, Manila, will honor the young historians who dedicated their time and effort to contribute in the tedious, fact-finding world of history.

Pante is a faculty member of the History Department of Ateneo de Manila University.

Jerome Ong, another awardee, won for his manuscript titled, “Ospital ng Bayan: Isang Kasaysayan ng Philippine General Hospital (1907-2007).” Ong is an assistant professor at the Department of Social Sciences, University of the Philippines Manila.
