We invite all colleges and units to submit at most two (2) full papers of their best extension program/services, detailing the service or technology, extension methods, profile and location of beneficiaries, impacts, awards and recognitions, and publications, among others. A committee will select the best papers among the entries. OVCRE will provide assistance in journal matching and publication to the awardees.
