The atmosphere inside the Marikina Sports Park went hotter as fifteen candidates showed themselves in their stunning sportswear during this year’s Ms. Sportsfest as part of the events in ICCT Colleges Intramurals 2012. AVP for Academic Affairs, Mr. Ariel Casimiro organized the said Beauty search in coordination with AVP for Student Affairs, Mrs. Zenaida Nicolas who was also the over-all chairman of the Sportsfest 2012.
The audience cheered wildly as respective candidates introduce themselves one by one, thus making the ambiance even hotter. For the final blow, the candidates strike a pose.
The judges, Dr. Jonathan Domingo, Ms. Narissa Bolvar-Ardales, Ms. Marilyn Erasmo, Ms. Marissa Rodriguez did a question-and-answer portion with each of the candidates, and they responded remarkably.
In cooperation with the Special Projects Office, this marks another milestone for Ms. Sportsfest, because for the first time the number of ‘likes’ of each candidate in the ICCT Facebook Page was included as 20% in the criteria, aside from the judges’ tabulated scores. The candidates from ISHTM with 10,797 likes, Sumulong Campus with 9958 number of likes Antipolo Campus with 5973 likes, led the top three ranks (online votes) respectively.
The awarding ceremonies were held at the end of the day, with Ms. Angelou Meneses, the candidate from the Antipolo Campus winning the crown, followed by Ms.Marjolyn Joyce Nuñez from the International School of Hospitality and Tourism Management (1st Runner-up) and Ms Maricar Roxas, from Sumulong Campus (2nd Runner-up). This interactive way of voting is truly a milestone for all ICCT students, and it is anticipated to continue for the years to come. (Jay Paul Agonoy)
