The annual Search for Miss Silka Palawan 2017 has begun, pageant organizers Cosmetique Asia Corporation and Travel and Marketing Experts, Corp (TMX), announced Friday.
The pageant, which has produced national beauty titlists including Imelda Schweighart (Miss Silka Philippines 2010), Sandrine Stoelzaed (2nd runner-up 2012) and Kathreen Grace Ahorro (Miss Silka Philippines 2014) is on its 8th year of showcasing Palaweña beauty and talent.
The contest is open to all females 16 to 22 years old, born and raised in Puerto Princesa or other municipalities of Palawan.
Qualifications to the pageant include a minimum of one year residence in the locality being represented, at least 5’3” in height, single, without a tattoo and with fair and smooth complexion.
In addition, contest applicants must not be a title holder of any national pageants, with no existing sponsorships/endorsement deals with other cosmetic brands, and must present parents’ waiver for those below 18 years old.
“The annual pageant helps instill among Palaweñas the importance of taking good care of their bodies, especially their skin. It has helped them boost confidence and provided exposure to present themselves as smart, beautiful, talented and intelligent women, making them role models,” said Cleo Diomampo of Top Stata Events Management and Training Consultancy and Miss Silka Palawan 2017 local coordinator.
The winner of the beauty and talent search will represent Palawan in the Search for Ms. Silka – Philippines Pageant on November 2017 in Metro Manila.
“Miss Silka Palawan search has served as a training ground for these girls for other national beauty contests as it has produced winners who eventually became title holders and official candidates of Binibining Pilipinas and Miss Earth Philippines tilts,” Diomampo added.
Screening will be at the Chinatown Center Palawan Activity Hall on June 30, 2-4 PM, July 1, 2-4PM and July 2, 4-7PM.
