     The Accountancy Student Council (ASC) held a Trash Art Event last July 25, 2012 in support of its two advocacies: environmental and student empowerment. The different organizations of the Alfredo M. Velayo (AMV) College of Accountancy participated in the competitions held by the ASC.

     Relevant to their environmental advocacy, “Trash equals Art” is a competition wherein each organization was tasked to create an artwork using a specific recyclable material. They assigned the frequent trashes produced by the AMV community to be transformed into works of art.

     Pax Romana won the competition with its artwork of a peacock made from plastic spoons and forks. The dress out of directory papers made by the Society of Business Managerial Accountants placed second, while the Rotaract’s abacus made from plastic bottles placed third.

     For its advocacy on student empowerment, the ASC used t-shirt as a medium for it “quite literally never goes out of style.” This advocacy was made to encourage students to take a positive stand on issues that concern them. The statement shirt-making contest was called “ArTEEst.”

     The Society of Business Managerial Accountants won first place, while Paci Rhutmos and Red Cross Youth Council placed second and third, respectively, in the shirt contest.
