“Every year is a milestone for Miss Pansol Philippines Pageant (MPP), it has become bigger and better in terms of the quality of the candidates, high production value and the support of our corporate sponsors and friends from the Philippine pageant industry, (to) whom we are always grateful, for selflessly giving their precious time, talent, resources and creativity in coming up with a well-organized and respected pageant event that is Miss Pansol Philippines (MPP),” says Kagawad Breinard Bautista of Bgy. Pansol and Executive Chairman of MPP.
Miss Pansol Philippines has now become the trendsetter and an inspiration to other barangay grassroots pageants in the country in establishing their respective pageant events.“Never in my wildest dream (did I think) that a mere local barangay pageant which we painstakingly established seven years ago will gain national prominence and prestige to what it is today,” Mr. Bautista further adds.
More than just a beauty pageant, The Miss Pansol Philippines is a grass-root based local pageant search that aims to provide young ladies from the community a venue to showcase their talent, beauty and intellect and empower pageant participants to be a well-rounded individual, capable of enhancing her inherent capacity for self-development and excellence. The Grand Coronation is slated on February 19, 2016 at the Barangay Pansol Plaza, District III, Quezon City. Reigning Miss Pansol Philippines, Miss Diane Prado will crown her successor at the conclusion of the pageant rites.
