Amazing Race Siargao Successful Event

Five teams of socially savvy, fearless warriors from all over Siargao Islands embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime experience, traversing tourist spots and proving their mettle on a quest to be crowned the all-out champion.
21 youth participants took part in the first-ever Amazing Race for the Oceans in Siargao Island last Sunday, June 27, 2021. The participating teams were composed of students from the Agri-Fishery Department of Surigao State College of Technology -  Del Carmen Campus; and hailing from the 9 municipalities in the island of Siargao.
Traveling to multiple stations in the shortest amount of time, each team arrived at a new destination where they must compete in a series of physical, mental - and often emotional - challenges. Each station comes with a challenge that is relevant to themes such as Mangrove Management, Sustainable Tourism, Marine Protected Areas Management, Deep-Sea Mining, Ocean Conservation and Environmental Protection. 
The Amazing Race- Siargao is part of Project i-WOD: A World Ocean Day Celebration Project brought to you by Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative Alumni Mobilization Program through Leadership and Influence to Filipino Youth (AMPLIFY), and is supported by the U.S. Embassy in the Philippines. This is also in partnership with US Government Alumni Association Panay and Guimaras, Sustainable Ocean Alliance Philippines, Siargao Agri-Youth Organization, Surigao State College of Technology -  Del Carmen Campus, Municipality of Del Carmen, Surigao del Norte, Philippines , Rare Philippines, and Del Carmen Youth Initiative - DCYI.
