Anchor for Excellence Maritime Quiz Bee kicks off in Bicol


CAMARINES SUR— Mark Oliver and Jonel Tanierla of Mariners' Polytechnic Colleges Foundation – MPCF Canaman emerged winners of the Anchor for Excellence Maritime Quiz Bee eliminations which was held here yesterday.

Oliver and Tanierla will represent Camarines Sur in the regionals.

Other winners were Kaiser De Lima and Lloyd Eje (2nd place), and Michael Pilapil and Jhuzel Munda (3rd Place).

The Anchor for Excellence Maritime Quiz Bee was sponsored by ANGKLA, which is represented in Congress by Cong. Jesulito A. Manalo.

In an exclusive interview with BICOL STANDARD, Manalo said that the maritime quiz bee is in pursuit of ANGKLA's vision of elevating the Philippine maritime education as a global center of excellence.

“I believe that there is a compelling need to inspire students to strive for excellence. There must thus be a collaborative effort between the public and private sectors to make sure  that our students are globally competitive. This is necessary in order for the Philippines to maintain its position as the premier supplier of seafarers,” he said.

At the moment, one out of four seafarers on board international fleets are Filipinos. 

Meanwhile, preliminaries will be held at the different maritime schools across the region. The schedule of the eliminations are as follows:

DECEMBER 15
University of Northeastern Philippines - UNEP Iriga City
University of Saint Anthony - USA Iriga City

DECEMBER 16
Bicol Merchant Marine College Inc. - BMMC Sorsogon City

DECEMBER 17
Mariners' Polytechnic Colleges Foundation - MPCF Legazpi City

Winners of the preliminaries will compete in the Bicol Regionals, which will determine the representative of Region 5 in the nationals which will be held early next year in Metro Manila.  

ANGKLA is the only party-list representing the maritime sector.
