ZAMBOANGA City’s very own Rizza Angeles won the championship in the National Quiz Bee as she bested 17 other participants in the recently concluded three-day 62nd Family Youth 4-H National Congress in the city.

City Agriculturist Diosdado Palacat said the National Quiz Bee focused on agriculture and 4-H Club national activities.

Palacat said the annual Family and Youth Congress is intended to empower the youth to reach their full potential.

He said it is also the venue where the organizers recognized the youth’s significant contributions to the nation’s development.

He said Angeles was the champion in both the city and regional finals for the National Quiz Bee held few weeks prior to the national finals in General Santos City.

The Congress was organized by the Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Training Institute. (Bong Garcia)
