Second year nursing students Ronnie Mark Zamora and Mark Clinton Pimentel placed 2nd in the recently concluded Poster Making contest sponsored by the Commission on Higher Education Region I held last August 19, 2011.
With around 13 other participants from rival schools in the province, Zamora and Pimentel hoisted the school to recognition by creating a colorful abstract done in watercolor on a 30″x40″ illustration board panel.
Anti drug elements such as appropriate drug education, avoidance of vices and cross marked illegal activities were painted on the panel.
The artworks were adjudged based on its relevance of the theme, creativity, color harmony, visual impact and workmanship.
A 0.10 margin of difference in total score prevented the Lorma team to get the top spot which placed artists from Northern Philippine Maritime College of Science and Technology to win first in the competition. Osias College in Balaoan ranked third in the contest.
The theme “D2KA, Droga Durugin Kinabukasan Alalahanin” , is a thrust of the Task Force La Union Anti-Drug Summit (TFLUADS) and CHED in response to the call of Rev. Bisop Artemio Rillera as well as local government units and non government organizations to combat the menace of illegal drugs on top of law enforcement.
The said summit is also a measure designed by the collaborating agencies to make La Union Drug Free by 2013.
