In what can be considered as one of the most lavish and excellently-mounted provincial pageants in the Philippines, Mutia ti La Union 2020 culminated in the crowning of its new Queens last March 2 at the Poro Point Baywalk in the City of San Fernando, La Union.
Divina Marie Villanueva of Sudipen, an Accounting graduate who plans to pursue Law Studies, was adjudged big winner of the competition after outclassing nineteen other contenders all the way to a cash prize of P100,000.00 and a reign that will open new doors of opportunities amidst the province’s efforts to bring its Agri-Tourism Campaign to greater heights.
Crowned as Mutia ti La Union Turismo is Fe Ladyma Abacco of Rosario, with Shaira May Soria of Pugo claiming the first-ever Mutia ti La Union Agrikultura title. Rounding up the magic circle of winners are runners-up Christine Jan Padua of Balaoan and Roxanne Danielle Sanglay of the City of San Fernando, respectively.
An impressive panel of judges – chaired by Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray along with Miss Universe Philippines 2011 Shamcey Supsup Lee, Designer Albert Andrada, actor Marco Gumabao, Hon. Christopher de Venecia, H.E. Igor Khovaev of the Russian Federation and Comm. Greco Belgica – had their work out cut out from start to finish.
The entire production – another #TheatricalExperience from Lumina Events Management Inc. – was an outstanding feat with all the makings of a pageant that can rival the best of their national level counterparts.
Kudos to everyone involved in this annual event from the Provincial Government of La Union headed by Governor Pacoy Ortega, the Tourism Information Office, the City of San Fernando and all nineteen municipalities that united towards a hugely successful undertaking!
