In line with the 48th Nutrition Month Celebration, Bitalag Integrated School (BIS) clinches 1st place against Bacnotan National High School (BNHS) in the 2022 Duo NutriQuiz Bee spearheaded by the Bacnotan Municipal Nutrition Action Office (MNAO) conducted today, July 29, 2022 at the Bacnotan People’s Hall.

Chris Michael Calderon, an incoming grade 8 student, and Joriz Ramos, an incoming grade 9 student from BIS, were hailed as winners of the said quiz bee. The winning duo is under Ms. Mary Grace Almojuela, head coach, and Ms. Gemma Bassig, BIS principal.

The contest comprises Easy, Average, and Difficult Rounds. However, a clinching round was initiated to break the tie between BIS and BNHS.
