The National Festival of Talents (NFOT) is an annual activity since 2012 that gives students the opportunity to showcase their talents in the fields of technical-vocation and the arts. These technical-vocational and artistic skills are presented through the products and performances as a result of what the students have learned from the respective subject areas.
The 2016 NFOT will have the theme "Artistry at its Best by Harmonizing Talents: Maximizing Skills." The festival will be held on February 22-25 at General Santos City. The NFOT will be happening simultaneously with the National Schools Press Conference (NSPC).
The 2016 NFOT will have the following fields for the skills exhibitions of the participants:
- Technolympics (Technology and Livelihood Education)
- Sining Tanghalan (Arts)
- National Population Quiz and On-the-Spot Skills Exibition on PopDev (Araling Panlipunan)
- Pambansang Tagisan ng Talino (Filipino)
- Foreign Language Skills Showcase (Special Program in Foreign Language)
General and implementing guidelines on the skills exhibitions in the different fields can be read on DepEd Memo No. 158, s. 2015.
