Scene City | ICHEF’s Agon Version 2.0

THIS year’s ICHEF Intramurals theme “The Agon Version 2.0″ aligns best to the School’s objective to promote camaraderie and healthy competition among its students. The Institute of International Culinary and Hospitality Entrepreneurship (ICHEF) held its three-day Intramurals on March 21-23, 2018.AGON ’18 Version 2.0 was this year’s cheerdance competition featuring ball games – volleyball, basketball, badminton and board games “Laro ng lahi” such as tumbang preso and tag of war were the highlights for the first day held simultaneously with the Poster-making Contest. The second day’s event was held at T.H.E. IMS Sky Atrium which featured the Literary and Musical competition. The “LitMus” or Literary Musical events included vocal solo, vocal duet, hip hop dance competition, and MTV Spoof. The last day of the Intramurals featured the search for the King and Queen of ICHEF Kingdom. This year was unlike any other. With a glamorous set-up, high-caliber panel of judges, new theme, and fresh faces that competed for the crown- the search for the King and Queen was one of the most memorable. The Game of Thrones’ popularity gave birth to the theme for this year’s Intramurals – “The Agon Version 2.0: A Game of Thrones- Building sportsmanship, transforming youth.”
