Third Place: Sinulog sa Kabataan sa Dakbayan elementary division

Young kids involved in a dangerous and illegal form of fishing — Muro Ami or reef-hunting — found a new hope when they found an image of the Holy Child under the deep seas.

This was how students from Alaska Elementary School, 450 of them, depicted their dance offering to Señor Sto. Niño.

But there's more as to why this year's Sinulog is very special for Alaska Elementary School. This is actually the school's first participation in the Sinulog sa Kabataan sa Dakbayan. Its choreographer, Jonas Molina, is also a first-timer, although he had already choreographed non-Sinulog performances in the past.

Since this is the school's first try in Sinulog, the participants are so hyped in showcasing their best dance steps for Señor Sto Niño.
