DTI-Zambo. Sur to hold search for best infomercial

By Franklin P. Gumapon

PAGADIAN CITY – As part of the National Consumer Welfare Month celebration, the Department of Trade and Industry-Zamboanga del Sur Provincial Office (DTI-ZDSPO) is going to hold a search for the best infomercial to be participated in by grade 9 and 10 students of public and private secondary schools in Pagadian City come Oct. 22 and 23.

The infomercial scriptwriting and recording will be held at DTI conference room on Oct. 22 at 9 a.m. and the judging will be held the following day at the same venue and time.

Eight teams from public and private secondary schools in the city are expected to join the said competition.

The invited  schools are Zamboanga del Sur National High School (ZSNHS), Pagadian City Science High School (PSHS), Pagadian City Comprehensive High School (PCHS), Zamboanga del Sur Schools of Arts Trades (ZSSAT), Holy Child Academy, Pagadian Junior College (PJC), Southern Mindanao Colleges (SMC) and Saint Columban College (SCC).

Each school shall field one team composed of three members for the English infomercial scriptwriting. These students should not be participants to the poster making contest, another competition lined-up for the consumer month celebration.

The contestants will be given one hour to prepare an audio script for a 1-3 minuter audio plug depicting this year’s theme, “Consumer Protection in the ASEAN Economic Community.”

Provincial Director Maria Socorro Malate-Atay of DTI-Zamboanga del Sur said the search for the best infomercial was designed to promote public awareness on the theme and, at the same time, to “create promotional materials on consumerism.”

The National Consumer Welfare Month is observed every October each year.
