DOST One Visayas stages invention contest, exhibits

Tacloban City (July 12) -- The Department of Science and Technology Visayas cluster composed of Regions 6, 7 and 8, is set to stage the 2010 Visayas Island Invention Contests and Exhibits on August 12 to 14, 2010 at Amigo Mall in Iloilo City.

DOST Region 8 Director Edgar Esperancilla informed that this year's theme is "Filipino Inventions and Innovations: the Way Forward."

The 2010 VIICE is a competition open for both the public and private sector inventors and researchers within the Visayas area. There are six (6) categories where talented Filipinos can compete in the invention contest.

The six categories include the Invention Category (Tuklas Award); Utility Model Category; Industrial Design Category; Creative Research Category (Likha Award); Student Creative Research Category (Sibol Award) for High School; and Student Creative Research Category (Sibol Award) for College.

Director Esperancilla disclosed that the Visayas Island Invention Contests and Exhibits (VIICE) serve as the elimination or qualifying round for the National Invention Contest, pursuant to Section 4 of the Republic Act No. 7459 also known as "Inventors and Invention Incentives Act of the Philippines".

The good Director is inviting investors and researchers in Region 8 to submit entries for the said contest.

"This is time to showcase your inventions and compete with other inventors from the other Regions in the Visayas," Director Esperancilla said.

The Inventions guidelines may be downloaded at DOST 8 website at www. region8.dost.gov.ph. The entry forms may also be downloaded from the same website. (PIA 8) [top]
