ECQ ‘Cluster Games’ brings out the best in Davaoeños

Trust Davaoeños to take a dire situation and turn it into a chance to show their talent in a friendly competition that highlights the importance of staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

No sooner had the city government divided the city into six clusters in order to limit the movement of people (and thus prevent the spread of coronavirus) than a “cluster war” began — and soon evolved into a “cluster game” with a seriously large prize.

How large? Davao City First District Rep. Paolo Duterte and a few others put up the following pot:

  • First: P350,000  and 70 sacks of rice  
  • Second: P120,000
  • Third: P60,000
  • Runner up: P40,000
  • All members of the video production team will also receive one sack of rice and canned goods.

The competition asks teams in each cluster to create a video with the theme #PUYOBALAY (stay home) and ECQ life.

And with prizes like that, it’s no wonder the clusters have come up with outstanding works — no mean feat considering they worked together remotely in keeping with the enhanced community quarantine.

The final products were submitted today, April 30. Have fun watching these!
