PUP student wins PBS Poster-Making Tilt


Richard Allan Ramos of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines bested 19 other school entries during the Poster-Making Contest Awards Ceremony held on September 23, 2005 at the Philippine Bible Society (PBS) Ministry Facility in Sta. Mesa Manila.

The competition was in line with the National Bible Week (NBW) celebration, a yearly national event observed every last week of January. The winning poster design, based on the NBW 2006 theme, “God’s Word: Power for National Renewal”, will be featured in the poster-calendar produced by PBS and distributed nationwide.
Six hundred students from 20 public and private schools and universities within Metro Manila, Rizal and Baguio City participated in the competition, which ran from August 22 – September 10, 2005. The over-all champion was picked from the 20 entries submitted by participating schools and judged by a three-man team of artists composed of Arlene Villaver, Fine Arts Coordinator of Kalayaan College; Dolly Groyon, author of Art for Philippine Schools; and Norma Liongoren, Owner/Manager of Liongoren Gallery.

The Poster-Making Contest was co-sponsored by the Campus Crusade for Christ, Episcopal Commission for the Biblical Apostolate of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, Inter-varsity Christian Fellowship, Kristiyanong Kabataan para sa Bayan, Youth on Fire, and other campus organizations.
National Bible Week, spearheaded by the Philippine Bible Society, is mandated by Presidential Proclamation Nos. 44 and 1067, signed by former Presidents Corazon Aquino and Fidel Ramos, respectively. In 2006, the celebration is slated on January 23-29.

I am a Bible Ambassador because I believe that the Bible can help people a lot. And knowing the Bible, people come in touch with the Lord Jesus Christ.

“I praise and thank our Almighty God that, through PBS, I now own a Poimen version of MBB (Magandang Balita Biblia) in the national language of the Philippines – Tagalog.
Knowing Matthew 10:32-33, I read and study the Bible so that I will not be dismayed when the Lord Jesus Christ comes. Life is too short compared with the promise of eternal life in God’s Kingdom.”

I think this is very helpful to every readers. The word of the Lord are the food of our soul which we always need every minute of our life. I dont often read the Bible but everytime i open it, God was always like in front of me and speaking as what is something i'm just needing to hear. He speaks to me and i can feel it. A million thanks to You my Lord.
