Sorsogon stude wins 2013 World Food Day Poster-Mosaic making contest

By: Ana-Liza S. Macatangay

PILI, Camarines Sur, Oct. 7 (PIA) — Gemini D. Detera, a 12-year old Grade 6 pupil from Sorsogon Pilot School will represent Bicol region national on-the spot mosaic-making contest slated on October 11 in Manila after besting 12 other contenders during the 2013 Regional World Food Day poster-mosaic making contest held at the Department of Agriculture (DA) Regional Field Unit library, here.

The competition formed part of the celebration of the World Food Day 2013 evolving on the theme: “Sustainable food systems for food security and nutrition.”

It aims to raise the awareness of the children on the importance of a sustainable food system should look like, emphasizing an ideal collaboration amongst the stakeholders and the available resources.

DA Bicol regional executive director Abelardo Bragas lauded the participants and their coaches for coming up with distinctive ways of promoting the theme by using the indigenous agricultural materials like corn kernels, rice, palay, weeds, and other grains in putting a tangible image to their artworks.

“I really admire the creativity of young minds. The way they conceptualize the messages of sustainability through their mosaic is really commendable. This is also one way of appreciating DA’s other programs such as the promotion of organic farming and the Gulayan sa Paaralan”, also being pushed by the national government to sustain food in the countryside,” Bragas stated.

John Reynold Brioso of Iriga North Central School bagged the second place and was accompanied by his coach, Marites Cabaltera while Froilan C. Villar of Magarao Central School grabbed the 3rd place. His coach, Reynaldo Albino, including other winning coaches was also given certificates and cash prize.

Detera will be joined by her coach Imelda Dellosa as she tries to beat national competitors on Friday during the national competition. The Board of Judges will select the five (5) best mosaics among the 17 regional participants. The winning mosaics will be displayed at the DA, Department of Education (DepEd) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) offices and will be used as designs for the 2013 Christmas cards.

The said competition was opened to all Grades IV to VI elementary pupils from any public and DepEd-accredited private elementary schools. Winners to the national level have gone through the elimination process at the school and district levels.

Every year, the World Food Day is celebrated around the world in commemoration of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945. DA joins other organizations in the celebration to push a common objective of promoting food security especially in the countryside.

DA’s primary mission is to help the national government in putting in place programs that would contribute to the achievement of alleviating poverty and to promote sustainable economic growth by raising the awareness of the community and its stakeholders. (MAL/LSM-PIA5/Camarines Sur)
