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)
