The search for Binibining Cebu is on

THE Bb. Sugbu Charity Foundation, Inc., in cooperation with the SHS-B Batch 1985 Foundation, is proud to announce that the search for the first Binibining Cebu has begun.

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.

This paves the way for a Cebuana who can, in turn, become the ambassadress of tourism for Cebu, moving towards the thrust of cultivating Cebu into an even bigger tourist destination.

The pageant welcomes all naturally born female citizens who are 5’4” and above in height when barefoot and are between 18-26 years old by August 14, 2017. She must be able to present proof that she or her parents/grandparents have resided in Cebu for at least six months and must have sufficient knowledge of the historic events, festivals, products, tourist spots, and other information of the place she is representing.

The winner will receive P500,000 in cash and P300,000 in kind, while the first runner up will receive P300,000 in cash and P100,000 in kind, the second runner-up with P200,000 in cash and P50,000 in kind, while the third and fourth runner-up will receive P100,000 and P75,000 in cash, respectively. The municipality she and the runners-up represent will also receive cash prizes between P50,000 to P200,000.
