COLLEGE of Education students reaped top awards during the 30th Food and Nutrition Research Institute seminar last July 6 and 7 in Bicutan, Taguig.

Nutrition and Dietetics senior Elaine Quirante placed first at the Nutrition quiz bee, while Food Technology graduates Wynvie Lee, Jesusa Grace Bantug, Rosette Dela Cruz, and Michelle Manuel took second place in the undergraduate student research competition with their study “Utilization of Chicken Blood in the Fortification of Hotdog with Vitamin A, Calcium, and Iron.”

The winning research revealed that the five per cent of pork or beef used in hotdogs can be replaced by chicken blood, which is more nutritious.

The Department of Science and Technology sponsored the event.

Meanwhile, an Architecture student won first place in Ayala Land’s house design competition last April.

Fifth year Architecture student Leandro Poco’s Neo-Filipino-themed entry was chosen among 100 other participants nationwide. Poco received a full scholarship and P20,000-worth of school supplies and equipment allowance, plus an apprenticeship with RMJM Dubai, a British design firm. Supplies and equipment were also provided for the winning college.

The “Dream Builders Student Design Competition” was held in celebration of Ayala Land’s 15th year anniversary which required each contestant to pass four models of houses and a village center. The winners were announced last June 20.
