PIA, DENR hold first Eco-Art Olympics in Tarlac
TARLAC CITY-The provincial offices of Philippine Information Agency (PIA) and Department of Environment and Natural Resources recently held its first Eco-Art Olympics in Tarlac in a bid to make the Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation advocacy closer to the youth.
PIA Tarlac manager Lorie Gene Cruz said the competition was designed to incorporate creativity and innovation in the course of strengthening environmental awareness among youngsters.
“This initiative is a trendsetter in our campaign on climate change adaptation and mitigation. Through this, we are not just able to discover budding potentials of students, but we are able to recognize modern heroes as companions in nation building and environmental stewardship,” Cruz added.
The contest has two categories: poster making and photography with students from Tarlac State University (TSU) as the initial contestants.
Among those who made the final cut in the TSU leg of the poster making were Jemimah Keren Galeon, Angelica Querido, Jhon Martin Dangcinan, Jayreen Ronquillo, Carl Jhiron Salcedo, Lawrence Ahl Sembrano, Maricar del Rosario, Philip Ermitanio, Bryan Gelacio, and Jinky Castillo.
Moreover, winners in the photography category were Peter Paul Pamintuan, Christine Marielle Arcilla, Yvonne Krizel Español, Jhosua Soren dela Cruz, Joan Marie Lactao, Fatima Banafra, Daiserie Llaneza, Kevin Rey Santos, and Alexis Callao.
Their works are presently on display in an exhibit in the main campus of TSU.
