The resulting winners were as follows: 1st Place with a cash prize of Php 3,000 – Philippine Normal University Mindanao (PNU Mindanao); 2nd Place with a cash prize of Php 2,000 – Agusan Del Sur State College of Agriculture and Technology (ASSCAT); and 3rd Place with a cash prize of Php 1,000 – Don Jose Ecleo Memorial Foundation College of Science and Technology (DJEMFCST).
