The winner in the slogan making contest is Grace Aplosen of the Easter College who got P1,500 and a trophy while Kristalyn Labunhog of Mil-an NHS placed second receiving P1,000 and a trophy.
The contest with the theme, “Adolescent’s perception of a friendly teen center,” aimed to help adolescents become advocates of safe sexual behavior by helping bring the message to their peers, families, and communities; to increase perception of the adolescent’s rights to good health and wellbeing; to impart good values to the youth to increase their health seeking behavior; and to create awareness that health facilities are friendly and are partners in the prevention and control of diseases.
City Health Officer Rowena Galpo said empowering the youth by making them aware of their rights involves giving them the necessary tools so they can become agent of positive change in their community.
