DOST Regional Invention Contests and Exhibits 2015 Now Accepts Entries Until September 15

Wazzup Pilipinas!

We've made shout-outs to social media a few days ago to announce the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Regional Invention Contests and Exhibits (RICE) 2015 for the National Capital Region or NCR. We were invited to a attend a press conference last week so members of the media can help share the news so your Pambansang Blogger ng Pilipinas immediately went into social media to make some noise. I also mentioned about the contest and exhbit on our radio show Vigattin at Radyo Inquirer and even invite dour guests from different colleges and universities to try their luck to join the RICE.

Since it's faster to share it in Facebook and Twitter, you've probably heard that we already promoted the acceptance of entries whose deadline is on September 15 and the actual event would be on September 28 to 30 at teh Technological Institute of the Philippines (TIP) in Quezon City.

I told DOST-NCR Regional Director Dr. Teresita Fortuna that I will help them in their future campaigns and announcements so that many would benefit from the active information dissemination that bloggers are widely known for.

I released first an announcement in social media, including the slides presented to us so the readers would know exactly what was shared to us. Then I uploaded the video message of Ms Fortuna on YouTube.

Thus, this blog post is another encouragement for everyone from high school, college to professionals, to submit as many entries as you can to get the chance to win as much as Php 50,000 as grand prize. There are many categories to join so there will be a lot of chances to win. Who knows, may be your inventions will win in all categories.

I made a video of her announcement so that you'll get to hear the news personally from her - making the message more intimate and personal as if she is speaking to you face to face. We want our government leaders to be as approachable and friendly so that the people, especially the masses, would appreciate their many efforts and recognize the significance of their projects. It is best we hear the news from them up close and personal through the video invite below.

Along with them at the press conference were power couple Dr. Acel Chicano and Nurse Denver Chicano, previous winners of RICE, who introduced us to Vermac - coined from two names (intentionally coined from the names Vernon and his brother Macmac) but with a meaning of Vitro Engineered Restorative Microcellulose Absorbent Covering which is a natural wound care product available in many sizes depending on the wound that needs to be covered. This is very affordable solution for burn, chronic, Diabetic, non-healing, and other similar wounds.

Check out the slide presentation used by Engr. Arman Bionat of DOST-NCR so you'll get more information about the contest. You may also e-mail me at if you need a copy of the full announcement memo from the Technology Application and Promotion Institute (TAPI).

The vibrant and humorous Toti Carandang of DOST moderated the press conference thus it was expected that the day was filled with lots of laughter due to his comical antics.

You can also check out the photo album at our official Facebook page for more photos from the press conference. Be sure to Like the Wazzup Pilipinas FB page while you're there.
