Lagro High School Grade 10 student, Isaac Red Amba, won Division level, Online Spoken Word Poetry and National level, Earthistic Traditional Art Category in the month of November.

Amba won the first contest, Online Spoken Word Poetry in the Division level placing 2nd among the 10 schools that competed at Quezon City Public Library in Cubao on November 18, 2021.

He also placed 3rd amongst 15 school competitors in the Earthistic Traditional Art Category at National level on November 29, 2021.

"I was happy and overwhelmed kasi I am achieving those awards. Isipin mo first time ko sumali sa spoken tas nanalo agad, even though nakakapagod and sobrang hirap, I think it is all worth it especially I am recognized as well," said Amba.

He stated that this was not the first time he had entered and on a poster-making competition, but this was the first time he felt nervous about almost failing to provide the artwork on time due to poor internet connection.

"I got nervous but felt fulfilled the time na na-pass ko na yung work ko and pumasok naman. I feel really grateful sa support na binigay sakin ng classmates, family and other friends and relatives ko na naging contributing factor din ng pagkapanalo ko. I am indeed blessed with all the people around me that always give me the best support," Amba added.

The awarding for the Online Spoken Word Poetry gave the winner, Isaac Red Amba with cash prize on December 2, 2021 and for the Earthistic Traditional art Category on December 4 of 2021.
