 VILLASIS- The Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) of Barangobong village here has found ways to make the two-month long Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) productive and educational not only among the youth but all residents in the village.

At the outset of the ECQ, SK Chair Bernie James Advincula, with the help of the SK kagawads (young legislators), spearheaded a fund raising campaign for health kits to be distributed in the village households consisting of soaps, washable face masks, health tips, etc, which were placed inside recycled paper bags under the project #IwaSKorona Barangay.

“ We were able to distribute more than 800 health kits as our contribution to deter the spread of COVID-19 in our barangay. We were hard up in producing our kits, but thanks to International Pharmaceuticals Inc. (IPI)  and other donors for helping us on our project,” Advincula said.

Advincula extended his thanks to his fellow youth officials composed of SK Kgd. Jephamae Ravida, SK Kgd. Joyce Gamboa, SK Kgd. Merivic Dianne Delfinado, SK Kgd. Melissa del Finado, SK Kgd. Conrado Acosta, Jr., SK Treasurer Mathushiela Manzano, and to other youth volunteers namely, Ms. Mary Joy Salazar, Karen Salazar, Jasper Mabasa, Jessa Gamboa, and Michael Fronda.

He said that in order for the youth in the village to productively manage their boredom, the SK also launched the “Tuklas Kaalaman” through posting of trivia questions associated with the ECQ and COVID-19.

“We allotted prizes to those who correctly answered the trivia questions to encourage them to read about the virus, the ECQ rules and regulations as well as health protocols. Many youth in the villages participated in that activity,” he said.

After the “Tuklas Kaalaman”, funny videos through the TikTok application were also encouraged among the youth dubbed as TikTok Challenge where the winners were declared the TikTokeRisks of the village.

The winners were given prizes: P500.00 for the grand winner (Jayson Bagacay), P300.00  for the 1st runner-up (Dexter John Bambalan), P200.00 for the 2nd runner-up (Aurelio Salazar), P100.00 for the People’s Choice (Kimberly Anne Basconcillo), and P50.00 worth of cellphone load each to seven consolation prize winners.

Through the group’s Facebook account, the Sangguniang Kabataan also helped in posting updates on barangay and municipal activities particularly on relief operations, health tips and ECQ operations.

“ We have a new home quarantine challenge among our youth in the village. We just launched an essay writing contest #MensaHero with the theme, “Mensahe ng Kabataan Para sa Makabagong Bayaning Frontliners”. This should be written in Filipino, which is  composed of 300 to 500 words. It is opened to 12 to 22 years old, either in high school or college,” Advincula said.

He said that they will be accepting entries on April 25 and ends on April 30.

The entries will be judged on the following criteria: Kinalaman sa Tema (Theme Content)- 40%, Pagkakaayos ng Kaisipan (Coherency of Thoughts)- 30%, Istilo at Husay ng Paglalahad (Style and Creativity)- 30%, or a Kabuuan (Total) of 100%.
