15 young artists win in RCCC art competition 2023

Some 15 young artists won in the recently concluded Rotary Club of Clark Centennial (RCCC) Children’s Arts Competition 2023.

The winners received more than P70,000 cash and gift certificates during simple ceremonies held at the Santungan Cultural Center below the Abacan Bridge on June 17, 2023. Some 215 young student-artists from Angeles City’s 53 public schools had participated in the art competition.

The art competition had been coordinated by the Rotary Club of Clark Centennial and the Angeles City Department of Education (DepEd).

This year’s children’s art competition had been an overwhelming success since there were 215 entries, according to Doctor Brian Tan, RCCC President. Last year, there were only 54 total entries. “We hope next year we can add more donors and make it an even bigger event.”
