Getting there

winning poster, Poster Making Contest (Theme: Forest for Water and Wetlands), S.K.I.L.L.S. League

Expressing my appreciation and thanks to the organizers of the 1st Provincial Tourism and Hospitality Management Inter-School Competition 2011, held at the Teatro Ilocandia, Mariano Marcos State University-Batac Campus, for giving me the wonderful opportunity of judging the poster making contest and fashion show/contest with an ecology theme.

I am impressed with the students’ good grasp of environmental issues. Celebrating Tourism Month with activities focusing on knowledge and skills enhancement as a way to promote environmental awareness is praise-worthy, insomuch as keeping tourism sustainable is a challenge of the real world.
