Davao del Norte won the bid to host the Palarong Pambansa 2015 last December 16, 2014. Here's the story by Keisha Therese D. Halili.
"Davao del Norte bested four other provinces to earn the hosting rights to the Palarong Pambansa next year.
The province nabbed 16 out of the 18 votes during the final bidding and deliberation of the Department of Education Management Committee at the Department of Education Main Office in Pasig City, Metro Manila yesterday. The committee was made up of DepEd regional department heads, representatives from their main office, and representatives from the Philippine Sports Commission. The voting was done through secret balloting.
The committee took into consideration the results of the visits of the technical inspection team to the bidding provinces. The visits, which occurred during the last few months, mainly assessed the billeting sites and playing venues among other things. The results showed Davao del Norte lead by a huge margin with a final score of 87.2 % followed by Surigao del Norte with 81.9 %. The other three provinces were Zamboanga del Norte, Lanao del Norte, and South Cotabato.
Also taken into consideration were the final presentations of the provinces, which summarized their capabilities to host as well as their responses to the improvements suggested by the technical inspection teams.
DepEd secretary Armin Luistro stated that it was the readiness of Davao del Norte to host that set it apart from the rest.
