The winners in the provincial-level are Princess Grace Ducao (1st Place) of Kolambugan, Rosemarie Silva (2nd Place) from Lala and Rodniel Pansoy (3rd Place) of Tubod.
The winners received cash prizes from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
Among the towns that participated in the search were Salvador, Kauswagan, Baroy, Balo-i, Maigo, Kapatagan, Bacolod, Munai, Pantar, Matungao, Tangcal, Pantao Ragat, Poona Piagapo and Linamon.
“Through this search, we are recognizing the children beneficiaries who have set excellent examples at home, in school and in the community here they belong,” said Delmerah Unos of 4Ps Provincial Link.
The awarding ceremony will be held during the National Children’s Congress on October 27 to coincide with the National Children’s Month. (PR)
