The National Quincentennial Committee (NQC) launches the Batang Bagani Kiddie Art Project Online. Children 7-12 years old are invited to take part in this online activity through sharing their artworks focusing on the theme Victory and Humanity in Me. This is in solidarity with the 500th anniversary of the Victory at Mactan, the Philippine part in the first circumnavigation of the world, and other related events, collectively known as the 2021 Quincentennial Commemorations in the Philippines (2021 QCP). Batang Bagani is a collaboration of the NQC, National Historical Commission of the Philippines, Department of Social Welfare and Development, and Department of Education and has been launched last July 2020.

Batang Bagani (literally ‘Kiddie Hero’) is chosen as the name of the project to unleash the ideas of heroism and kindness in a Filipino child through art.  Whereas, the theme is derived from the official theme of the 2021 QCP: Victory and Humanity.  Victory represents the triumph of our heroes since the Battle of Mactan, while Humanity embodies the kindness our ancestors in Homonhon shown to the sick and hungry crew of the Magellan-Elcano expedition, the first to voyage around the planet, 500 years ago.



Considering that November is celebrated as National Children’s Month, the Local Council for the Protection of Children, this Local Government Unit has to replicate said project and dubbed it as BATANG BAGANI KIDDIE ART ONLINE CONTEST focusing on the theme: VICTORY AND HUMANITY IN ME.

The Local Council for the Protection of Children invites Filipino parents and/or guardians to showcase the creativity of their kids through drawing or painting in Batang Bagani Kiddie Art Online Contest. The contest aims to feature the meaning of victory (achievement, success) and humanity (compassion, kindness) in a Filipino child (e.g., what it takes to be an achiever yet kind Filipino child; what makes a Filipino child a champion but with a big heart for others).

The LCPC aims to gather 150 children’s artworks to be featured every day on the official Facebook page of the LGU of Compostela. Qualified children are Filipino children who are residing in the Municipality ages 7-12 years old.
