The contest, held at the Iloilo Provincial Capitol grounds on Thursday, gathered 16 participating schools from the province.

Each group, having five members, created the lanterns using materials provided by the Penro.

Colors brightened the area where the contest proper was being held. Bottles, paper cups and other recyclable materials were painted with bright colors, shaped and carved carefully to produce their creative output.
