Davao Norte hosts 2007 Reg'l Population Quiz Bee

TAGUM CITY (3 October) -- Nine contestants from various secondary schools in Davao Region were now in Tagum City yesterday (October 2) for the 2007 Regional Population Quiz Bee.

Camelo F. de Guzman, Davao del Norte population program officer explained the quiz bee was held in Davao del Norte this year as the province had taken its turn to host it for having won in last year's event.

Joanne Paguyo, of Maryknoll High School of Maniqui in Kapalong, Davao del Norte last year grabbed the 1st place in the Popcom Quiz, consequently representing Davao Region to the national quiz where she landed 1st runner up.

"We are a consistent winner in the population quiz. We were the first province in the region to have won in the national competition," de Guzman said.

"This goes to say that population education has been effectively integrated in schools," he added.

De Guzman said the quiz sought to raise awareness among students on the importance of population concerns especially with regards to their fertility and reproductive health.

"And that as early as possible, they would be able to understand gender (sensitivity) and development," he said.

The quiz be was being organized in coordination of the Department of Education in cooperation with the Provincial Government of Davao del Norte. (PIA/JMDA) [top]
