The Pambayang Pederasyon ng Mga Sangguniang Kabataan sa Midsayap is leading the conduct of the 2020 Linggo ng Kabataan (LNK) for the month of September. 

In partnership with the Local Government Unit of Midsayap and the Midsayap Youth Development Council (MYDC), various events were prepared by the federation to be participated by the youth of this municipality, to wit; Graphic Illustration Contest, Guhit Kabataan:Poster Making Contest, Padyak Kabataan:A Unity Ride, Survival Garden Competition, SK QuaranQuiz, Talk Series: Responsible Use of Social Media, Debate Kabataan, Musikang Handog Para Sa Frontliners, Kabataan Para Sa Kalikasan:Tree Planting & Monitoring Activity, and Mobile Legends Tournament. 

With the implementation of the community quarantine in the municipality, non-essential gathering of people is prohibited that is why the federation considered online platform for some of the events of the LNK.

Mark Ferven L. Avance, SK Municipal Federation President and Ex-Officio Member of the Sangguniang Bayan of Midsayap, shared that these events were coordinated with the Emergency Operations Center of the Midsayap COVID-19 Task Force.

“Para sa kabataan, buhaton ta ang tanan”, said Councilor Avance relating to the challenge brought by the COVID-19 pandemic in the celebration of the annual LNK. 

Avance also enjoined the youth participants to follow public health protocols during the conduct of the abovementioned events. 

This year’s theme of the LNK celebration is “Youth Engagement for Global Action”. 

Section 30 of Republic Act No. 10742 or the Sangguniang Kabataan Reform Act of 2015 mandates the observance of Linggo ng Kabataan in every province, city, municipality and barangay.
