City-wide oral folklore research, documentation project launched in Ligao, Albay

LIGAO CITY—It is the birthplace of Mariano Perfecto, the acknowledged father of Bikol literature, but more than the distinction of having produced Bicol's pioneering literary figure, this city is now in the forefront of preserving and promoting the local oral tradition.



The city, through the Department of Education of Ligao, launched the Literaturang Ligaonon: Bulawan, Ladawan (A Showcase of Tradition and Culture) yesterday, November 29 at the Ligao National High School Gymnasium. Bikol author and heritage advocate Carlos A. Arejola was the guest speaker at the launch.

The grand kick-off ceremony of the said city-wide oral lore research and documentation competition was attended by DepEd Ligao Schools Division Superintendent Maria Luisa P. Samaniego, Asst. Schools Division Superintendent Osias S. Monforte, SP Education Committee Chair Helen Abalos, and project proponents Alex Michael S. Boribor and Dr. Alicia O. Retona. Also in attendance were school heads, education program supervisors, district supervisors, school reading coordinators, and students of the DepEd Ligao City Division.

The school, district and division level judging phases of the competition are scheduled early next year. Winners of the division level will be announced on March 2017 during the Ligao Cityhood celebration, where top three winners of the elementary and secondary categories will be awarded excellence certificates and cash prizes.

DepED Ligao City Divisions is also slated to embark on the Bikol Ligao orthography project, along with other initiatives advocating for culture and heritage.
