DepEd Communications Unit Director Tina Ganzon talked about the agency's goals for this year's game aside from it being the first 'clean and green' event.

"We really want to instill, among the athletes, a spirit of sportsmanship. We believe people excel in sports," said Ganzon. "We want the kids to be aware of this annual sporting event and to be excited. This is something already part of the tradition of students. There's a lot to look forward to."

The games will take place in Lingayen, Pangasinan from May 6-12. - Rappler.com
