1st INDONESIAN FOOD BOWL QUIZ COMPETITION 2011 Rules and Guidelines Towards ASEAN Undergraduate Quiz Bowl Competition 2011

Himpunan Mahasiswa Peduli Pangan Indonesia (HMPPI) or Indonesian Student Movement for National Food Security is Indonesian undergraduate student association in food science and nutrition and related science (nutrition, aquatic product and technology, and animal husbandry product and technology). This organization’s name reflects that it has a great potential not only in strengthening student’s professional skill but also in improving mutual understanding and communication among its members. Synergizing both things will lead this organization into stronger state. As the only student organization in Indonesia which brings both fields of food technology and nutrition, HMPPI is eligible to play a role as Indonesia’s representative in the international level. Rather different from other models of organization such as government agencies and private company, these student organizations are characterized by its high spirit of youth, enthusiasm, dare to try, and creativity. Therefore, HMPPI should be able to set an example about how Indonesian students of food technology, nutrition, and related science care upon the nation’s state in term of food and nutrition. This can be proved by its real movement in applying student’s knowledge for the people. Along with its philosophy in improving knowledge and care, HMPPI holds responsibility to create Indonesian food technology and nutrition students to be active participants in nation-building through community service based on its professional core competence. The term of improving professional core competence is not limited within wall of the classroom. It is a universal term which can also be obtained through organizing and joining scholar competitions that may boost student’s knowledge.
