According to former SK Federated Chair of SK Panglao,Hon. Amira Montero, 
The Miss Panglao Pageant is a unique pageant since there is a strong emphasis on youth empowerment and dynamic involvement in community activities.”
Indeed, the goal of Miss Panglao is not only to crown the most beautiful girl in town but also to show that young beauty queens can become public servants too.  Through their popularity and beauty, they can help lobby to support a specific project.

I still remember Miss Panglao 2011 Judith Anne Cruz who used the seed money she won from the pageant to launch a Math Literacy project to give free basic Math tutorials to academically-challenged students in her school.

TV/ MOVIE ACTORS & NATIONAL BEAUTY QUEENS

The annual beauty spectacle that will mark its fifth year edition with a Grand Coronation Night on Monday, August 25, 8 pm at the Panglao Town Plaza will have added star value with the presence of a leading TV/ movie actor who will serenade the girls and regale the crowds. 

Past & present national beauty titleholders will also lend their beauty & glamour for a more elegant & truly beautiful celebration.

Internationally- renowned & respected pageant expert & blogger Norman Tinio whose blog is widely followed here and abroad has been invited not only to be a member of the judging panel but also to see for himself the beauty & tourism potentials of the island paradise of Panglao known for its white sandy beaches & laidback charm. 

The Miss Panglao 2014 Pageant is the most anticipated pre- fiesta highlight of Panglao's town fiesta that honors its patron saint, San Agustin.  It started in 2010 and founded by Aya Montero of Panglao Youth Organization to give opportunities for the local youth to develop and polish their leadership and community organizing skills

This year's pageant is produced by the Local Government Unit of Panglao headed by Mayor Nila Montero & MyMadamme Productions 

Pageant Over-all Chairman & Pageant Director is the talented & very capable Mr. Deo Guden of Alona Tropical Beach Resort
