Let us all welcome Hiyas ng Pilipinas into the Philippine pageant world!
Hiyas ng Pilipinas is the first Cebu-based national pageant. It wants to empower young Filipina women through Leadership and Community Service. As leaders and role models within their communities, the participants work to effect positive change through volunteering, fund raising and advocacy. During their reign, the winners will be given the tools to personally and professionally enrich others by dedicating themselves to raising awareness and much needed funds for philanthropic endeavors.
During the media launch held at the Golden Peak Hotel & Suites in Cebu City earlier, the members of the Board of Directors were introduced. Led by National Director Eva Patalinjug, she is in good company with Chairman Ronald Elpa, Vice President Jesselle Saniel, Operations Director Roy Erwin Tizon, PR Director Maria Alma Maria, Director of Communications Auguste Izhar Pepito, Finance Director Sugar Borja Sagarino, Director of Legal Affairs Christian Bacus and Director of Charity Karla Tandoy.
About the logo above:
Hiyas is a Tagalog term for “JEWEL” a precious object like a pearl.
She is the Queen coming out from a giant clam and bearing the crown and the pearl itself.
The CLAM RAYS behind the queen represents the eight first provinces of the Philippines that fought against the conqueror for our freedom.
GOLD represents energy in which that Philippines is very known for because of our warm climate and hospitality. It also represents confidence, success and elegance. It symbolizes one where people from all different cultures will be unified. This makes us think of how gold never tarnishes or rusts, and how that should also be a quality of unity. True unity should withstand the test of exposure and time.
Initially, the group acquired three (3) international pageant franchises where the winners will compete in:
