Q.C. Poster Painting Contest on Climate Change Launched

Calling all high school and college students of Quezon City!

The Serbisyong Bayan project of Mayor Sonny Belmonte and the Environmental Protection and Waste Management Department (EPWMD) proudly announces the launching of the “Q.C. Poster Painting Contest on Climate Change”.

“Climate change” is no longer just a buzz phrase or an abstract concept that is far removed from our lives. Our tragic and traumatic experience with the recent floods brought about by typhoon “Ondoy” has literally brought home the message that climate change is for real. And its effects are expected to get worse in the days ahead, if we don’t act now!” Mayor Sonny Belmonte said.

He further added “that joining this contest is your one little way of doing something to help reverse the effects of climate change before it’s too late! So, pick up your brush and let’s paint the future green!”

The “Q.C. Poster Painting Contest on Climate Change” aims to provide an opportunity for high school and college students enrolled in public and private schools in Quezon City to express their views and concerns on climate change and disaster risk management issues and how these could be collectively addressed.

The theme of the contest is “Every Day is Earth Day in Quezon City ”.

The entry must depict citizen action to address climate change and/or environmental protection and its impact on the quality of life in Quezon City .

There will be a total of eight (8) winning entries: four (4) each from high school and college levels. Each winner shall receive P 20,000.00 to help defray the student’s tuition fees and other expenses.

Any form of media (paint, oil, acrylic, watercolor, crayon, colored pencil, pastel, charcoal, stickers, etc.) or other materials on paper or boards in either a flat or two-dimensional effect can be used. The entry must incorporate the theme “Every Day is Earth Day in Q.C.”.

All entries must be original and must include a completed entry form in duplicate (a copy must be attached at the back of each entry). Eligible high school and college students may submit multiple entries. Photocopies of entry forms shall be accepted. All incomplete entry forms will automatically be eliminated.

Entry forms are available at the Office of the Principal / Dean of all respective schools in Quezon City .
