High school student shines in international art contest

Pasig City (18 April) -- Another Filipino did the country proud as a fourth year public high school student shone in an international art competition in Japan.

Dysiree Airee V. Abang of Batasan Hills National High School in Quezon City, took home the bronze prize in the 14th World Children's Picture Contest in Japan. Her winning art piece bested some 45,978 entries from 68 countries worldwide.The contest was sponsored by the IE-NO-HIKARI Association, an organization dedicated to cultural enhancement and the promotion of international exchange of goodwill and understanding.

According to Ikebata Akio, IE-NO-HIKARI president, one can see the children's diverse cultures as well as the social conditions under which they live through their works, which were created with uninhibited sensibilities."I would be most pleased if many children of the world who see the commemorative book of winners broaden their horizon and develop a new sense of cooperation and friendship," Akio added.

Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary Jesli Lapus hailed Abang's triumph, adding that her success is a testimony to the world-class creativity of the Filipino."Dysiree's achievement is proof of our country's deep bench of world-class creative talents," Lapus said. "We hope that her success will inspire our students to excel, whatever their circumstance may be." (DepEd) [top]
