More than 200 Day Care children from different cities and municipalities in Central Visayas showcased their talents in the 2017 Regional Children’s Contest held recently at the Mandaue City Cultural and Sports Complex.

Xavier Eñego Umpad from Cebu City tells about his drawing on drug problem based on the theme “Bata: Iligtas sa Druga”. He wins first place besting other 16 kids for the Draw and Tell category.

Luke Niño Doliente from the Municipality of Dauis representing the Province of Bohol sings a Visayan song “Paglaum”. He bags the first place for the singing category.

In her opening remarks, Lucero said that the whole society should help each other to make the community drug-free and safe for the children.

“Yes, it is true that the children are the future of our country and also among society’s most vulnerable members, so it is the duty of the government and child protection advocates to ensure their safety and well-being are prioritized,” she said.

Xavier Eñego Umpad of Cebu City impressed the judges and the audiences with his compelling explanation of his drawing about drug problem.

Kita mo ani? Mao kini ang druga. Makadaot sa atong lawas. Makadaot sa atong mga pangandoy (Do you see this? This is illegal drug. Harmful to our health. Hindrance to our dreams),” the 4-year-old kid from Brgy. Pung-ol Sibugay said as he pointed to his drawing.

Busa, kamong mga ginikanan, tudloi mi ninyo ug agaka mi ninyo paingon sa matarong nga dalan aron malikay lang mi sa druga, sa ginadiling druga (Therefore, parents, teach us and guide us in the right direction so that we will stay away from drugs, from illegal drugs),” he said.

Xavier Eñego bested other 16 child contenders in the draw & tell category.

Keisha Yussin Pajulas of Siaton, Negros Oriental and Qastle Quinjhi Aquino of Talisay City finished second and third in the same category, respectively.
