Lantern con­test open to stu­dents

Watchmen Daily Journal - - TOP STORIES - By Do­minique Gabriel G. Bañaga

Or­ga­niz­ers of this year’s Ba­co­lao­diat Fes­ti­val are call­ing on stu­dents to join the Lighted Gi­ant Pig Lantern Con­test.

The con­test is open to groups of high school stu­dents, col­lege stu­dents, and those en­rolled in TESDA-ac­cred­ited vo­ca­tional cour­ses in Ba­colod City and Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal.

In or­der to be el­i­gi­ble, school-based artists must have a rec­om­men­da­tion from the prin­ci­pal or head of their re­spec­tive in­sti­tu­tion. How­ever, if the group de­cides not to carry the name of the school, all mem­bers must be ver­i­fied stu­dents and will need cer­ti­fi­ca­tion from the school where group mem­bers are cur­rently en­rolled.

In ad­di­tion, all mem­bers of a group must come from the same school.

All en­tries must have a min­i­mum length of six feet and min­i­mum height of six feet. While the base may be pro­por­tioned to de­sired spec­i­fi­ca­tions, it must have a min­i­mum height of two feet.

Lanterns should be well­lighted, weath­er­proof, and able to with­stand ex­treme weather con­di­tions.

P5,000 will be given to the first eight par­tic­i­pants to sub­mit com­pleted reg­is­tra­tion and re­quired at­tach­ments to the Ba­coloa­diat Fes­ti­val Of­fice on or be­fore the Jan­uary 19 dead­line.
