Tough competitions were conducted on the following activities with their judging criteria:

-The Cultural Dance: music quality, choreography, synchronization, depiction of the theme, costumes, group participation; -The Food: students’ participation in the prep, food sales, presentation of dishes; -The Booth: discipline & student response, decoration, display of cultural exhibits, efforts and design, overall appearance; -The Beauty Pageant/Fashion Show: creativity, authenticity of costumes, depiction of theme, and originality.

The remarkable success of the program was due to the collaborative efforts of the students and teachers. While the booths and beauty pageant took the massive time, attraction, and applause, the food preps and selling of food were engaging and highly participated by the students.
