by Jennifer Catan-Tilos

DUMAGUETE CITY, Jan. 31 (PIA) -- The Department of Energy calls onNegrenses to participate in the nationwide electric tricycle (e-Trike) design contest, specifically because Dumaguete City and Negros Oriental thrive on motorized tricycle as means of transport within the city and neary areas.

Final judging of shortlisted entries will be on Feb. 24.

Top three winners will receive P200,000.00 each while seven participants will receive a consolation price of P50,000.00 each.

Deadline for the submission of entry that includes a CD and hardcopy (A3 size) enclosed in a sealed envelope will be on Feb. 17, 2012.
