The search is in honor of the city’s first national artist Victorio C. Edades from Bolosan right on his birthday, December 23, which is being proposed to be declared by the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) as Edades Day.
Jimenez won P10,000  cash prize for his art work.
Gem Castillo, also a Grade 10 student of DCNHS, won second place for his painting of Edades while Ivanne Drehx Escobar, a grade nine student of DCNHS, won 3rdplace. They both received P7,000 and P5,000, respectively.

Five more students of the school were awarded consolation prizes of P500 each for their art works. They are Winona Bautista, Jon Chris Lim, Rosalyn Gipa, Jannine Vargas and Jimenez.
The students’ adviser Emmanuel C. Toledo confided he was confident of the talent of his students and expected them to win but expressed hope that they improve more on their works in painting.
Jesusa Edades, a second generation of the Edades clan, gave her testimonies on how Victorio lived during the time she was with the national artist for two years in Manila.
Mayor Belen T. Fernandez, who led the awarding ceremony, disclosed that the talents of the students in the arts inspired her to give full attention to the developments of their talents, which made her decide to construct a building for them and the next generation of artists at DCNHS.
Fernandez was joined by Schools Division Superintendent Froserfina J. Bravo, Assistant Schools Division Superintendent Lourdes Servito, 2016 City Fiesta Executive Chairman Epee Rafanan, Culture and Arts Officer Zenaida Sinlao and Dagupan Hymn composer Rex Catubig.
