Tribu Manubiaw bags 2012 Talakudong Festival champion’s trophy and 130,000 pesos prize!

In probably one of the hotly contested street dancing and field demonstration competition in Talakudong Festival’s  history, Tribu Manubiaw (students of Tacurong Pilot Elementary school) won this year’s grand prize in style- by winning two more special awards, the best in showdown and best in field demonstration.

Tribu Manubiaw  regained the title they won in 2010 Talakudong Festival. And sure they did performed well this time!

Tribu Manubiaw bested first runner up and last year’s grand champion, Tribu Kudong (V.F. Grino Memorial National High School and North Tacurong District ) and second runner up,  Tribu Ugoy-Ugoy (New Isabela Central School) who also won the best in street dancing special award.

The other groups that performed awesomely are the Tribu Takurongnon (A.S. Bernardo Memorial National High School), Tribu Salakot (Tacurong National High School), Tribu Pintados (Notre  Dame of Tacurong College). The grand champion wins a whooping Php135, 000.00 plus trophy, the first runner up Php100,000.00 and a trophy and the second runner up Php 85,000.00 plus trophy. An additional php 5,000.00 is given to winners of the special awards. Non winning groups received Php 10,000.00 each.

Talakudong Festival is a weeklong, festive celebration of Tacurong’ city hood foundation culminating in and highlighted by the street dancing and field demonstration competition of Tacurongnons wearing “kudong” or headgear. The prizes for this year were drummed up to entice more groups to join the competition.

To the winners, congratulations! To those who din’t win now, winners should watch out for you next year! Congrats to the organizers and sponsors of this competition  Thank you for making Talakudong Festival truly more fun in the city of goodwill!
