This year’s EVRAA is co-hosted by two DepEd school divisions—Tacloban City and Leyte province—with the sporting events slated to take place in said city and the nearby towns of Palo and Tanauan.

EVRAA winners will represent the region in the 2023 Palarong Pambansa from July 29 to August 5 in Marikina City.

Finally, the Department of Education (DepEd) Central Office has set aside Php 2 million, while the regional office allotted Php 1.5 million for this year’s EVRAA Meet. (By Gwen Maurillo & Photo grabbed from the City Government of Ormoc FB Page / EV Mail April 17-23, 2023 issue)
