THE ON-THE-SPOT essay writing and poster-slogan-making contest organized by the Office of Civil Defense and Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council as part of the activities in observance of National Disaster Consciousness Month in Western Visayas will be today at Robinsons Place Iloilo starting at 10 in the morning.

Secondary students and elementary pupils from various divisions and schools in the region will participate in the twin events designed to promote the active participation of young people in the government program on disaster risk reduction and management towards safe and resilient communities.

OCD Regional Director and RDRRMC chairperson Rosario Cabrera said the contest will highlight the creative talents and skills of young people in putting down in words and posters how they can help in the government program mandated by the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010.

Cabrera added that the contest will focus on the theme of the observance “Ligtas na Bayan, Maunlad na Pamayanan”. (JSC/PIA6)
