Kidapawan City to celebrate 23rd Charter Day with meaningful, culture-based contests online
Kidapawan City (January 25, 2021) – Kidapawan City will celebrate it’s 23 rd Charter
Day on February 12, 2021 digitally or through online competitions. This development,
according to Kidapawan City Mayor Joseph A. Evangelista is for the City Government to
avoid community gatherings and to comply with the existing minimum health protocols
and at the same time ensure that the Charter Day of the city is given proper recognition.
Under the present situation where mass gatherings are prohibited and both government
and private sectors are banned from having community celebrations, Mayor Evangelista
said it is best for the city to celebrate its charter day and express its gratitude to
Kidapawenos by conducting online competitions such as festival song contest, vlog
contest, online painting contest, E-comics making contest, and photo essay contest.
“This is the best way to commemorate our charter day and be reminded of the sacrifices
of our past and present leaders for the sake of our city. We can still celebrate our
cityhood without the physical or actual presence of the people” said Evangelista
The festival song contest is open to all individuals with original compositions and
arrangement while the vlog contest is open to all individuals or group of three (3) ages
18 years old and above and bona fide resident of Kidapawan City.
On the other hand, the online painting contest is open to all amateur artists who are
residents of the city who must submit only one entry with the theme: Hope for
Kidapawan. Likewise, the E-comics is open to all individuals or group of three (3) ages
18 years old and above.
Furthermore, photography enthusiasts can also submit their entries focused on the
influence to the life of the photographer himself or herself.
Deadline for the submission of entries is on January 31, 2021 on or before 5:00 p.m.
Exciting prizes and recognitions await the winners of these contests.
