TAGBILARAN CITY, May 24, (PIA) –People who write well tends to think well. And people who think well tends to be successful. 

And in response to the call for heroism and creating the environment for new heroes to effect the change the Philippines needs, the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) in Bohol put in Arts and Literary Workshops for students in Tagum Sur High School, in Trinidad town, May 22, 2014. 

Fresh from a soccer clinic as part of the agency’s contribution to the Bayani Challenge 2014 which the town committed for May 20-22 at the Municipal Training Center grounds, the PIA then picked up the pace to volunteer anew for the student arts and literary skills capability building in barangay Tagum, some four kilometers from the town center. 

The PIA took up the challenge of raising new heroes as the largest social mobilization to re-ignite the fire of heroism in the Filipino gained momentum since April 12. 
The idea is to gather one million volunteers across 12 provinces, says Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma, during the April 9 launching in Bohol. 

Every year since 2006, Gawad Kalinga (GK) and its partners have staged the Bayani Challenge with the objective of building relationships, bringing out the hero in everyone and raising resources and results for the poor that can only be achieved by working together, states Bayani Challenge website. 

While volunteerism is the call, there is also that need for young leaders to get into the groove, acquiring the necessary skills to do packets of heroism by inspiring others or by themselves modeling to others, PIA said. 

The idea is to guide the student writers to make use of the arts and literature to express as well as to boost their self-confidence, said workshop organizer who talked with school faculty at the workshop sidelines. 

At the literature writeshop, students dealt with feature writing and used the theme on planting trees to mitigate the effects of climate change. 

This was after an hour long of discussions on the difference between straight news and feature articles. 

Meanwhile, at the Arts workshop, the discussions dealt on the basics of sketching, elements of art, coloring and rendering plates according to the basic elements. 

Student artists from grade seven to high school seniors joined the arts workshop which used basic pencil and crayon, held at the high school science room. 

PIA also gave a free film showing to the community in the evening, just as the Bayani Challenge volunteers were readying the barrio fiesta themed solidarity dinner. (PIABohol/RAC)
