Best garden and poster winners awarded

BAGUIO CITY – In a post-celebration of July as nutrition month, students from private schools and best home gardeners were accorded awards during last Monday's regular city hall flag raising ceremonies.

In the inter-school poster-slogan making contest done on-the-spot in August 31, Michelle Grace Dawe and Daniel Ray Perez and coach Carlo Parrocha of the Philippine Women's University (PWU-CDEC), Baguio City received first prize; Gianna Madrigal and coaches Annie Laurie Cagas Banglot and Jovie Agway of Saint Louis Pacdal (SLP), second prize; and Jasrie Paula Austria and Jescel Angel Jade Landingan with coach Joshua Lingwayon of Saint Louis Aurora Hill (SLAH), third prize. All were given plaques, with the cash vouchers being prepared at the City Treasurers' Office.

Other entries were done by Larwyn Diaz and Prezel Javillonar with coach Jenna Javillonar of the Small World Christian School (SWCS); Joelle Bautista and Aubrey Macalino with coach Isagani Charlie Dumpayan of the University of Baguio Science High School (UBSHS), Ridge Sim and Toska Maria Peony Tabora with coach Vener Kigangan of Berkeley School; Lorie Mae Papey and Daphne Olipas and coach Romer Arannis Marjarnaon of Saint Louis School Center; and Keziah Valerie Lumanog and Jerome Chris Valiente and coach Pastor Romeo Valiente of Grace Bible Academy.

The slogan-posters had to portray and creatively present the 2017 nutrition month theme, "Healthy diet, Gawing Habit for Life!"

Meanwhile, five home vegetable gardeners were recognized; Teresa Peningeo of Irisan, Jane Paulyn Abanag of Lucnab, Amelia Montes of Pinget, Johnny Balabag of Poliwes and Soledad Umali of SLU-SVP, ranked first to fifth best, respectively, from the 128 barangay participants.

The participants were given several months since March to prepare, needing a minimum of five varieties of vegetables and edible herbs, planted in vertical and rooftop gardens, plots and pots, including recyclable materials. Said gardens were in household backyards, barangay halls, empty lots and available spaces; pre-judged in July and finally adjudged in August.

Launched by the City Nutrition - Health Services Office, the garden contest was maintained by individuals in the community for food security, provision of fresh vegetable on the dining table, and physical exercise for the gardeners.

Coordinator Myrna Holanio said the goals and focus on activities with positive outcomes include beautification, reduced vandalism, littering and crime, food security, environmental improvement, economic benefits and improved health.

The activity was supported by National awardee for urban gardening Danilo Agliam who was presented a certificate for promoting, sustaining and sharing technical knowledge on urban gardening to interested individuals in the city. - juliegfianza
