ABOUT MISS CEBU:
Miss Cebu celebrates its 30th year as a pageant that presents to the world the true beauty of a Cebuana.
Started in 1983 by a small group of Cebuanos blessed with foresight, Miss Cebu took on the task of promoting Cebu as a viable alternative tourist destination. This came at a time when tourism in the Asia Pacific region was in its early stages and an imperative tool for countries to woo investors to their shores. Cebu's leaders then understood that the Queen City of the South needed to position herself as an island blessed with splendid resources that beckoned and nurtured tourism and trade.
The Miss Cebu pageant became an event Cebuanos looked forward to and an effective vehicle to establish good international relations in its early years with countries like Japan, Australia and Korea among others.
Hence, through typhoons, administration changes and economic turmoil, the organizers continued to put up the pageant every January, making it a must-see during the Sinulog fiesta week. Despite how much the pageant has evolved, some things remain the same. Although there are new faces each year, the quality of the women and pageant has been consistent. The tradition, legacy, relevance and message of the Miss Cebu pageant remains that the Cebuana is more than just your usual beautiful face- she is an epitome of beauty, brains, a woman of substance. Consistently, Miss Cebu has produced national and international beauty queens, world-class models and individuals who excel and stand out in different fields.
Miss Cebu is unique and special. She is goal-oriented, direct and ambitious. She is an achiever in many areas.
Miss Cebu is a model for other women. She cares about a woman's role in society, especially in addressing challenging issues in society. She works in a defined way toward possible solutions and uses her crown and its accompanying responsibilities to make a difference in the community that has chosen her to be its role model.
Miss Cebu is confident, commanding in presence and a potential leader by virtue of experience in competitions. She is an eloquent communicator and one who exudes talent, intelligence, charisma, and health. She is also physically attractive both in face and figure.
Miss Cebu displays all these characteristics in her everyday life both as an individual, with the hope of advancing her career, her personal and humanitarian goals, and a woman, seeking to improve the lives of others in her community.
