Code:    Proj-289
Date:    08/01/1980 - 12/01/1982
Duration: 4 Months

This was a joint project of PCF, Popcom, and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports. Thirteen seniour high school students representing each region of the country gathered in Manila for the national championship. The show was aired live via domestic satellite on November 20. The contestants answered questions on family planning, current issues, new technology, population and development. In addition to participating in the national championship, the regional delegates were taken on a population education tour to show them how the different variables of population affect development and how a highly urbanized city like Metro Manila attempts to cope with rapid population growth in terms of housing, transfortation, education, health, technology, recreation and culture.
