This was the 1st regional science quiz that I attended when I was in the Manaoag High School. It was held in Vigan Ilocos in a government school (I could no longer recall the name of the school.)
The quiz aims to develop the interest of the students in science and technology and its beneficial applications among high school students. Categories then were Physics, Biology, Chemistry and 1 more subject which slipped my memory. I was contestant in the category “Chemistry”. Pompe Sta. Cruz , Hilario Padilla and one female classmate representing another category.
We were billeted in a dormitory owned by a seminary. We took time to visit the vigan church with its life-sized religious images. We also enjoyed riding callesa from the city to our dormitory.
