Young Artist, Master Worth Lodriga-Sanchez, Wins in 6th Annual Manila Bulletin Sketchfest 2016
Master Worthington (Worth) Lodriga-Sanchez of Section 3-H won Third Place (Category 1) in the recently concluded national art competition, the 6th Annual Manila Bulletin Sketchfest 2016 held last Aug. 29, 2016 at Mall of Asia’s Music Hall. The seven-year old artist from La Salle Green Hills won 3rd place in the on-the-spot art competition event that was participated in by over a thousand artists from different parts of the Philippines. The theme of the competition was “A Step to a Better Philippines”.
The contest was divided into three categories: Category 1 or the Kiddie Category (children 12 years old and below), Category 2 or the Junior Category (13 to 18 years old), Category 3 or the Senior Category (19 years old and above). Art materials for Category 1 participants were provided for by the organizer. The contest started at exactly 9:00 AM and all entries were submitted to the contest committee at 3:00 PM. Judging and announcement of winners came after.
The Grades 2-6 Art Teachers, Mr. Carlo Luis C. Ganzon, Miss Rosemarie D. Ordinario, Mrs. Mellany B. Ramirez and Mr. Rommel E. Cadigal, chose five grade school pupils who excel in the visual arts to join the Category 1 of the said contest. These talented pupils were: Kenzo B. De Guia (2H), Worthington L. Sanchez (3H), Joaquin Inigo D. Avellaneda (4B), Eduard Benedict C. Barrera (5C) and Kyle Xavier Y. Hung (6H). Mr. Ganzon and Mr. Cadigal served as the coaches and adult companions of our contestants to the said venue.
The bands played loud rock and electronic music throughout the event, but this did not dampen the spirit nor hamper the creativity and concentration of the contestants in producing exquisite works of art.
The competition had an estimated 1,000 participants. Some represented their schools, while others joined just for the experience in and thrill of taking part in such an activity. It was a tiring but very productive day for everyone. Moreover, the priceless experiences will surely remain in the hearts and minds of all our contestants.
Congratulations to our creative Lasallian, Master Worth Lodriga-Sanchez for a job well done!
