And Miss Panglao 2014 Is Crowned

And the tradition of crowning a beautiful & articulate Miss Panglao continues...

 2nd RU Cecile Grup, Miss Panglao 2014 Charmaine Ness Sagaral
and 1st RU Ashley Naval
Congratulations to the new Miss Panglao 2014 Charmaine Ness Sagaral of Brgy. Lourdes who wowed the judges and the crowd with her wit & spontaneity. Turns out she is a former Managing Editor of HNU’s school paper, The Word.

Miss Panglao Pageant is not just another beauty pageant. It is a unique personality search that aims to select Panglao’s ambassadress of goodwill who would not only be the spokesperson for the various projects & advocacies of the youth of Panglao but also be a positive role model for her peers and for the community

Giving Charmaine stiff competition was the lovely and articulate Catrina Ashley Naval of Arbasto Foundation Inc. who eventually settled for 1st RU honors. Second RU was Cecile Grupp  of Rotary Club of Panglao Island

The Board of Judges included reigning national beauty titleholders Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson, Miss Philippines Earth 2014 Jamie Herrell and Mutya ng Pilipinas Asia-Pacific International 2014 Eva Patalinjug with top hair & make up maven Jonas Borces, highly respected & influential pageant blogger Norman Tinio, Karin Wesemael of Linao Beach Resort  and Your Blogger

Thanks to Panglao Mayor Nila Montero, Miss Panglao Founder Aya Montero & Project Director Deo Guden for the invite to judge and grace the pageant.

I was actually misty- eyed seeing how the pageant has improved by leaps and bounds. From a fledgling beauty pageant search when it started in 2010, it has become one of the most awaited & one of the grandest pageants in Bohol.
