The Occidental Mindoro Youth Fest officially kicked off last December 1, led by the province’s Sangguniang Kabataan Festival.

The event started at 5:30 in morning, with a colorful run on the Capitol Grounds, followed by different competitions, such as, skateboarding, mobile legends and tamiya.

This year’s festival carries the theme “Linkages Towards Effective Governance.”

Provincial SK Federation President Trisha Kaye Fabic acknowledged the participants of the conference and the SK officials of the province.

Meanwhile, Vice Governor Peter J. Alfaro, the first ever Provincial SK President, gave “challenging remarks” to these youth.

Rep. Josephine Ramirez-Sato said that the youth are “heroes” themselves.

“Now consider yourself as heroes because they choose you to be their heroes. Mas malaki ang oportunidad na ibinibigay sa inyo so don’t lose that opportunity, Great opportunity comes great responsibility. And, we believe in you, so accept the challenge,” said Sato.

Other SP Members present were, Aj Rebong, Philip Ramirez, Edwin Mintu and SB Member of Abra de Ilog Jun Abeleda.

Other activities that ensued were Hair and Make-up Artist Competition, Model of the Runway and Youth Fest Night.
