BONTOC, Mountain Province-The provincial government conducted an inter-department Cordillera Hymn Challenge as closing of Civil Service month-long celebration here at the Capitol quadrangle on Sept. 28.
As a means of encouraging the internalization of the hymn among government employees, Gov. Bonifacio C. Lacwasan, Jr. urged participation of all offices in a choral competition.
Provincial Human Resource Management Officer Leonila Milagrose F. Malla-ao said  the groups enjoyed their performances in the competition.
The competition formed 14 clusters out of 28 departments. However, participants from the Paracelis District Hospital were not able to attend the activity.
The Provincial Engineer and Motor Pool Office cluster emerged as champion.
 The Provincial Assessor’s and Provincial Accountant’s Offices’ cluster came in second while the Provincial Security Office made it to the third place.
The prizes amounting to P33,000 were sponsored by the provincial government. Overwhelmed by the performance of the participants, some provincial government authorities also shelled out some amount for the additional prizes to all group participants and as incentives to key players who helped make the event a success. Lacwasan gave P21, 000 in appreciation and in support to the said activity while some department heads readily gave theirs in various amounts.
A total of P15,000 was awarded to first place, P10,000 for second and P7, 000 for third. The remaining ten groups received P2,000 each as consolation prize.
Based on the activity mechanics, the participating groups must have at least 15 or more members, must sing the Cordillera Hymn in a capella, and must come up with their warm up song.  The criteria of judging was : tone quality, 30%; musicianship, 30% and mastery of piece,  30%. Sstume and stage presence was 10% for a total of 100 points.
 Lacwasan earlier issued a memorandum directing the inclusion of the Cordillera Hymn Challenge as part of the 117th Philippine Civil Service Anniversary Celebration.
The music and lyrics of the Cordillera hymn were composed by Julia Saganib and Juanita Madarang, respectively.
