2018 poster making contest 7Raphael Antonio P. Mendoza of Francisco Bangoy National High School is this year’s Champion of International Coastal Clean-up Poster-making Contest organized by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-XI. Menodza’s artwork depicts the importance of coastal resources and the need for people to work together to protect it from destruction and pollution. Also highlighted in his artwork is the “pawikan”, an endangered marine species that needs conservation efforts from human beings.

With the theme “Bayanihan Para sa Karagatan”, DENR-XI conducted its first ICC Poster-making Contest in celebration of this year’s International Coastal Clean-up Day and National Clean-up Month. This event was participated in by eight (8) high school students from different public schools within Davao City. Most of the contestants are active members of the Youth for Environment in Schools Organization or YES-O.

Other winners are Leah A. Alfara of Davao City National High School (1st Runner-up) and Kyle Edward B. Manglicmot of Sta. Ana National High School (2nd Runner-up).

ICC Poster-making contest is one of DENR-XI's lined-up activities for September which aims to further heighten the level of awareness of the youth sector on the significance of coastal ecosystem and the need to conserve, protect and manage it.

The event is organized by the Regional Public Affairs Office (RPAO) and Coastal Resources and Foreshore Management Section (CRFMS) of the Conservation and Development Division.


Public warned vs. misleading info on cost of processing land title

The Land Management Bureau (LMB) has urged the public to ignore and stop sharing a Facebook post claiming that P50.00 is all it takes to secure a land title, calling it "misleading and erroneous."

The post claims that those who wish to have their lands titled only need to pay an application fee of P50.00 or a "package fee" of P185, which includes the "application fee, stamp and clearance."

It even cited an official of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) as the source of the information, probably to make the post look authentic.
