Polytechnic University of the Philippines representative Ella Marie Calurasan and Coach Prof. Yolanda Montances were named winners of the Philippine Tours Operators Association (PHILTOA) 29th Philippine Travel Mart Quiz Bee held on September 1 at the SMX Convention Center.
Calurasan and Montances, both from College of Tourism Hospitality and Transportation Management, bested 9 other participants from various schools across Luzon.
The quiz bee focused on tourism-related topics, such as Tourism Geography, ASEAN Integration, Tourism Packaging, Planning, and Costing.
“It is a monumental thing for our college and of course for the University because it’s been six years since we last held the crown,” Calurasan said in an exclusive interview with The Observer, emphasizing the struggles they had to endure to end the six-year drought.
Prior to the event, PHILTOA held a 16-person Elimination Round on August 17, 2018 at the PHILTOA Office at Ayala, Makati City to determine who will be the finalists.
