Here’s another reason for all of us Mindanaoans to rejoice and certainly be proud of our fellow Mindanao residents! A school in Mindanao is gunning to be a part of the renowned Guinness Book of World Records! Mindanao State University – Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT) in Iligan City, Mindanao will attempt the “Most Number of People Singing the National Anthem Simultaneously” on September 1, 2009.
The event, which will start at 9AM, will be held at the MSU-IIT Gymnasium and organizers are urging interested participants to wear white shirts and maong pants. Organizers of this Guinness World Records attempt are hoping to gather at least 3,000 people.
The event, the first ever attempt by a Mindanao school, will also be held in line with the celebration of the month of peace (September). Designed also to build unity, peace and harmony among the people in Mindanao, the event is sponsored by various stakeholders in Iligan City.
Let’s hope that MSU-IIT Iligan City garners all the support and that they become successful in their quest. Good luck!
