BS Entrep Students’ Galiang Food Production is Young Farmers Challenge 2022 Provincial Awardee

BS Entrep Students’ Galiang Food Production is Young Farmers Challenge 2022 Provincial Awardee

The Sorsogon State University (SorSU) proudly congratulates the BS Entrepreneurship students from Bulan Campus for being selected as one of the fifty-eight (58) awardees for the 2022 Outstanding Agri-Business Models under the Young Farmers Challenge (YFC) Program of the Department of Agriculture – Provincial Level.

Incoming seniors and business partners, Maria Lyra L. Escanilla, Carla D. Tan, Andrea C. Panelo, Raul G. Navarro, Jr. and Mary Joy G. Boribo, submitted their entry, the Galiang Food Production (GFP), and received PhP100,000 as start-up capital for their agri-business venture. They will be competing for the P150,000 Regional level award this October 2022.

The members formed GFP as part of the BS Entrepreneurship program requirement and more importantly, to develop, promote and support local products that will benefit the producers, consumers, community and the industry. They created an organic flour made of “Galiang”, commonly known as “Palawan” in Bicol or Giant Swamp Taro in English. The group plans to continue its research on how galiang can be further utilized and marketed as a food product. GFP believes that galiang flour can become a flour substitute and be able to compete in the food industry.

When asked about the YFC Program, the student-entrepreneurs said, “participating in the YFC program is a great challenge for us as this is our first time to compete, and at the same time, it is also an opportunity for us, Entrepreneurship students, to achieve our goals of having our businesses. We felt blessed, grateful and motivated. We felt that our efforts, commitment, passion and faith were recognized and appreciated. It is an honor to become a part of the YFC program and we promise to do our best to utilize the grant efficiently as our start-up capital for the Galiang Food Production business.”

In closing, the student-entrepreneurs “promise to pursue their goals to become successful business owners – and to become an inspiration to the youth to engage more in agri-business”.

SorSU congratulates Bulan Campus led by Campus Director Ma. Elena C. Demdam, Dean of BME Department, Dr. Diane V. Sales, the BS Entrep adviser, Prof. Ophelia G. Delmonte, together with Prof. Marilyn N. Inocentes, Mr. Santos Gigantoca and BS Entrep Program Chair, Ms. Abegail Arimbay, for their dedication and support to the degree program. The award serves as an inspiration and incentive to BS Entrep students to continually create research-based products sourced from the local communities for agri-business projects.

In-House Review

The institutionalization of the Sorsogon State College Research and Extension Agenda for 2017-2022 aligned to the 10-point agenda of the Duterte administration and other line government agencies, pave the way in producing community driven needs research projects for dissemination and adoption. One avenue to realize this is the conduct of the College In-House Review where completed research projects of faculty members, staff, students and collaborating agencies are evaluated by experts of different disciplines.

As of the second quarter of the current year, there were at least 30 identified research and development projects for presentation in the in-house review divided into five categories namely, 1 – Technology Development and Innovation, 2 – Agriculture, Fisheries and Natural Resources (AFNR), 3 – Language & Teaching Innovation, 4 – Student & Curriculum Development, 5 – Governance and Social Development, and 6 – Provincial Development and Sustainability.

Thus, to accommodate the increasing trend of involvement of the Colleges faculty members, the Office of the Research and Development Services (ORDS) organizes the 18th inhouse review on September 20-21, 2018. This aims to improve the quality of research outputs through the valuable comments and suggestions of the



participants and the panel of evaluators; thus, making these worthy for presentation in other symposia and conferences in the regional, national and international levels. This shall also qualify these outputs for publication in any CHED accredited, ISI, scopus and other international refereed journals.

This year
s two-day in-house review features plenary talk from invited speakers leading towards utilization of the research outputs. Furthermore, to disseminate research findings to the intended audience in the community, stakeholders from the

Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the province, local government units and different sector representatives in the local communities of the province are also invited to grace the activity.

For this year 2018, the Sorsogon State College—Office of Extension   Services (OES) will spearhead the gathering of extensionists, community development advocates, evaluators and keynote speakers-lecturers, partneragency representatives and LGU heads in a 2-day conference dubbed as the 4th


OES Highlights anchored on the theme:

“Embracing the future perspectives of Extension Services: Forging new partnerships and building local capacities for inclusive growth and development.”


This years extension highlights is designed towards opening up the gateway towards building the foundations for more strengthened collaboration with education partners here and abroad. A pool of faculty experts and esteemed evaluators are invited to provide inputs gaining new insights on the latest trends in the conduct of locally sustainable extension programs/projects.


This also becomes an avenue to effectively disseminate the extension accomplishments/ best practices of the College helping the SSC project teams to become fully abreast with the latest developments within the practice of the field.


The winners in the paper presentations are endorsed by the College for various extension presentations and conventions at higher levels. Further, it aims to identify the projects that could be effectively adopted by a larger community groups.

In addition, it aims to determine which project could be supported in a macro level that would boost sustainability in various aspects addressing the local demands and at par with the international standards.

Apart from recognizing best extension practices, this year‟s OES highlights will also include the “Executives‟ Session”. This activity would gather all the SSC Extension key players and partners in a round table discussion with the local chief executives, planning officers, academicians and SSC administrators in a convergence initiative while providing insights in strengthening partnerships, highlighting the new extension services modalities that could be worked for, in the attainment of the mission and leveraging out plans for the inclusive growth and development of the Sorsogueños.
