Be the Next Binibining Cebu
The search continues for the next Binibining Cebu as the reign of Apriel Smith, the first ever Binibining Cebu comes to a close.
“Binibining Cebu is not your typical pageant. We celebrated Cebuano culture and immersed ourselves in various charity works. It was a fruitful journey and my reign made me realize my greater purpose,” said Apriel.
Binibining Cebu seeks to honor Cebu’s diversity and colorful stories through a celebration of heritage and beauty. Each of the island’s 44 municipalities and nine cities will be represented by a candidate who will showcase its attractions, indigenous products, and culture.
“We Cebuanas are independent and fearless. We’re so fortunate to be in a province where there are a lot more places and faces that are yet to be discovered,” muses Binibining Cebu Tourism 2017, Samantha Lo.
The pageant welcomes all naturally born female citizens who are 5’4” and above in height when barefoot and are between 17-26 years old on or before coronation night. She must have sufficient knowledge of the historic events, festivals, products, tourist spots, and other information of the place she is representing.
The pageant remains to be the biggest in the country in terms of prizes. The winner will receive Php 500,000 in cash and Php 300,000 in kind, while the 1st runner up will receive Php 300,000 in cash and Php100,000 in kind, the 2nd runner up with Php 200,000 in cash and Php50,000 in kind, while the 3rd and 4th runners up will receive Php 100,000 and Php 75,000 in cash, respectively. The municipality that the winners represent will also receive prizes between Php 50,000 to Php 200,000.
“For my outreach activity, I was able to organize a livelihood program for the mothers in Gawad Kalinga Village Ticad, Bantayan. It was really heartwarming and I always knew I was made for charity,” said Maria Gigante, Binibining Cebu Charity 2017.
