CAMILING, Tarlac-Philippine Information Agency (PIA) joined Tarlac College of Agriculture (TCA) in celebrating its 69th founding anniversary through the conduct of the first “Eco-Power Up: Tarlac Youth Leaders’ Day.”
“Eco-Power Up seeks to provide a platform for the display of artistry of students of TCA and at the same time tap them as partners to the green crusade by informing them of the ill-effects of the changing climate in the hope of inspiring them to do their share to mitigate and find ways to adapt to it,” PIA Regional Director William Beltran said.
It consisted of a street dancing competition dubbed as “Indakan sa Kalye” which featured the various festivals of the province’s Ilokano-speaking towns, Search for Festival Queen, lantern parade, and climate change adaptation and mitigation and nation building youth forum.
The Institute of Engineering placed first in the street dancing competition with a tribute to the Buyboy Festival of San Clemente while the Institute of Education ended second with an entry inspired by the Ylang Ylang Festival of Anao and Institute of Veterinary Medicine landed third with its Paniqui Singkamas Festival entry.
Moreover, Institute of Engineering’s muse was crowned Festival Queen while the Men’s Dormitory topped the lantern parade.
Other partners in the activity include SM City Tarlac, Globe Telecom, and Pilipinas Natin. (Lorie Gene C. Cruz)
