CAMILING, Tarlac — Third year Animal Science student Brian Robillos bagged first place in the ASEAN On-the-Spot Poster Making contest of the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) at Tarlac Agricultural University (TAU).

Robillos bested 14 contestants bringing home a certificate along with a Php5,000 cash prize.

In an interview, he said that his art piece portrays unity among the 10 ASEAN member states.

“The message of my work is the vision of ASEAN promoting its three community pillars,” Robillos furthered.

Moreover, Geodetic Engineering student Marc Justin Cutamora placed second and got Php3,000 while Secondary Education student Ronnie Doctor landed third and took home Php2,000.

The On-the-Spot Poster Making contest served as an ancillary activity of the ASEAN Campus Forum of PIA.
 
“As part of hyping the Philippine Chairmanship of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) this 2017, PIA in Central Luzon will be holding campus forums in different provinces to educate and pitch support from the youth in this endeavor,” PIA Regional Director William Beltran said.
 
Each forum features discussions on the Political-Security, Economic Community Pillar, and Socio-Cultural Community Pillars.
 
TAU was the fourth campus it visited in Central Luzon after Tarlac State University, Central Luzon State University, and Aurora State College of Technology.

Other educational institutions it will visit this year include Bataan Peninsula State University, Ramon Magsaysay Technological University, Pampanga State Agricultural University, and Bulacan State University. (CLJD/MJSD-PIA 3) –Mar Jay S. Delas Alas
