ForeSTAR: A Parol-Making Competition for Quezon City Public High Schools

FORESTAR is a combination of two words: Forest and Star

Forest that creates wealth for our nation as the cradle of life which are rich not just of timber that we use to build houses, create furniture and produce paper but as a source of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) such as fruits, seeds, vegetables, honey, and medicinal plants, resins, essences, bamboo, rattan, palms, and grasses, among others.

Star that symbolizes the miraculous sign that guided the three kings to travel to Bethlehem to see the birth of the infant Jesus for which we celebrate as Christmas Day.

As we celebrate the holiday season, the Forest Management Bureau seeks to introduce and promote NTFPs to people, especially the students, to appreciate the importance of various resources that we get from our forests which we can turn into something useful and beautiful like the parols.
