It can be recalled that in July this year, DSWD launched the contest with the theme “Kayang-kaya ng Pinoy Tumawid Tungo sa Kaunlaran” because it has recognized the important role of media in relaying message to the public.
The field office received a total of 10 entries. The winning jingle entries were able to highlight the importance of health and education in fighting poverty. The entries were judged according to the relevance of the lyrics to the theme, musicality and originality. # # #
