by Alpine L. Killa

BONTOC, Mountain Province – Children from this capital town’s 16 barangays showcased their talents and skills in singing, declamation, and draw and tell in celebration of the National Children’s Month (NCM) on Nov. 16.

Bontoc Mayor Franklin Odsey said that the municipal government remains proactive in protecting and promoting the rights and welfare of children, but at the same time it needs the cooperation, participation, and help of everyone.

Sangguniang Bayan member Jerome Tudlong, Jr., who represented Odsey during the celebration, said that the protection of the rights and welfare of the children should not only be highlighted during the celebration of the Children’s Month.

He said the wellbeing of the children should be an everyday concern not only by the social workers and the law enforcers, but all stakeholders and the community.

Tudlong also commended parents and family members of the children for their full support to their children in the activity. He said that their presence motivates the children to perform at their best.

In the solo singing competition, Anwey Lliodifaine Apongao of Ban-ay, Talubin Child Development Center (CDC) wowed the audience and the board of judges with her angelic voice and graceful actions making her the champion.

Damayen Vem Faba-an of Mag-eo CDC landed in second place, and Kimshin Busoy of Alab Proper CDC placed third.

Faith Focang of Upper Mainit CDC was the first place winner in the declamation contest, followed by Temprance Anongos of Lanao CDC in second place, and Hazel Lamie Fangkingan of Sadlan CDC in third place.

For the draw and tell contest, Eneman Danielle Pachingel of Lanao CDC is the first place winner followed by Andrea Gakayen of Upper Mainit CDC and Mitchelaine Ngolab of Sadlan CDC in second and third places, respectively. 

SB member Viola Okko urged the public to be advocates of children’s rights.

This year’s celebration aims to highlight the gains and successes of the country in promoting and protecting children.

Further, the theme is also crafted to intensify the public’s awareness and remind all sectors of the community and society to be responsible in raising the Filipino child to become a well-rounded person.
