Our department’s Christmas committee this year came up with a "Lantern Contest" to be participated by the six divisions under the Operation’s department, the office of the head, janitorial and security. Each group was tasked to plot their wild and creative ideas and turn it into a Christmas lantern made of recycled materials.
After more than a week of planning, researching and trial and errors, each of the groups had finally submitted their work of art, and are now hanging along the staircase of our office building. Here they are, the most creative lanterns made of combined ideas coming from the engineers, technicians, office staffs, janitors and the security guards;
Entry # 1 (Janitorial Services)
Christmas lantern made from empty bottles of hand wash and hand sanitizer, plastic spoons and rugs.
Entry # 2 (Security)

Entry # 3 (NTD)

Judging of entries was done on Friday afternoon, December 12, 2014, with co-employees coming from the other department as judges.
Each group gave their best shot, but only three lanterns will win and received the a P3000 cash for the 3rd prize, P4000 for the 2nd and a whooping P5000 for the grand winner.
The announcement will be made on Thursday, December 18, 2014 during our department’s party.
We are crossing our fingers here, our hopes may be down because the other group’s entries came out beautiful than ours. But who knows, our lantern is more pleasing to the eyes of the judges right?
