Cebu Sinulog sa Kabataan sa Lalawigan 2012 Winners
After yesterday’s kick-off parade to open the festivities, it’s all systems go for the biggest and grandest festival in the Philippines, the Sinulog Festival!
Earlier, the Sinulog sa Kabataan sa Lalawigan was held. The Sinulog sa Kabataan is one of the highlights of the Sinulog Festival every year. It is held annually one weekend before the Sinulog Grand Parade. It serves as an “elimination round” for the elementary and secondary students of the province (Lalawigan) and the city (Dakbayan) as the winners of both competitions will automatically be elevated to be part of the Sinulog Grand Parade to go up against other local and out-of-town contingents.
The activity started at exactly 1 in the afternoon with street dancing by the participants from the Cebu Provincial Capitol, to Fuente Osmeña, down to the Cebu City Sports Center (Abellana), where the showdown was held from 2pm onwards. 6 contingents battled it out for the elementary division while there were 11 for the secondary division.
Here are the winners of the Sinulog sa Kabataan sa Lalawigan 2012!
5th: Santa Filomena Elementary School, Alegria (last year’s 2nd placer)
4th: Bogo City Division
3rd: San Roque Elementary School, Talisay City (last year’s champion)
2nd: Tuyan Central Elementary School, Naga City, Cebu (first time to join)
1st: Danao City East District, Danao City Central School
Best in Costume: Danao City East District, Danao City Central School
Best in Musicality: Danao City East District, Danao City Central School
Rapid movements, colorful props and eye-catching transitions afforded the Danao City Central School the crown for the elementary division this year! As there were only 6 groups who competed for the elementary division, only Gregorio Milan Elementary School of Balamban did not make it.
5th: Maslog National High School, Danao City
4th: Medellin National High School (first time to join)
3rd: Lawaan National High School, Talisay City
2nd: Toledo National Vocational School (last year’s 5th placer)
1st: Carcar City Division (defending champion)
Best in Costume: Carcar City Division
Best in Musicality: Carcar City Division
It was a very close fight between Toledo and Carcar for the secondary division. The former had very sparkling costumes and extravagant props which were executed properly while the latter had simple props but very seamless and graceful choreography and hair-raising musicality. Carcar emerged victorious as their performance really showed discipline and fluidity in their movements.
Other groups that participated in the secondary division were Pajo National High School (Lapu-Lapu City), Liloan National High School, Tuyan National High School (Naga), Tabok National High School (Mandaue City), Tuburan National High School and Tulay National High School.
Overall, the performances delivered this year have leveled-up, compared to last year’s Sinulog sa Kabataan sa Lalawigan! Governor Gwen Garcia and Mayor Michael Rama, who were both present, described the performances as world-class! It’s good that our homegrown contingents continue to raise the bar in terms of performances, choreography and innovation each year.
Meanwhile, it’s the city boys and girls’ time to shine tomorrow for the Sinulog sa Kabataan sa Dakbayan! Pit Senyor!
