IDEA 2015: An Invitational for Debate, Essay and Art

Our friends from the Rotary Club of CDO Premier launched a new project called I.D.E.A. 2015 An Invitational for Debate, Essay and Art. It is both academic competition among High School Students and at the same time to bring public awareness on the on-going creation of Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL). Participated by almost 100 High Schools here in Region X.

The event will be divided into four challenges: Oral Debate, Essay Writing, Editorial Cartooning and Acrylic Painting. All of which will tackle the primary theme "Peace in Mindanao". One of the focus of this event is to see the youths' perspective on the peace process in Mindanao, the creation of the Bangsamoro Region and the BBL.

The event will be held in Liceo de Cagayan University (LDCU) mainly in Rodelsa Hall. The Debates will be held in different LDCU's Audio-Visual Rooms and it will be televised on a local TV. The essays and the editorial cartoons will be featured in local and national newspapers. Acrylic paintings will be exhibited in a mall in Cagayan de Oro.

This event is FREE ADMISSION TO THE PUBLIC. Since this will be held in a university campus, I am encouraging everyone to submit ourselves to proper security inspection at the gates and abide to the university rules for mutual security, peace and order,

I really cannot wait what these bright youngsters can say and can do for the peace in our beloved country specially here in Mindanao. So don't forget September 11 and 12 IDEA 2015 Liceo de Cagayan University's Rodelsa Hall. See you all there!
