Miss Manaragat 2011 Pre-Pageant

After several candidates backed out from the Miss Manaragat Beauty Pageant, only twelve (12) candidates vied for the four special awards that were to be screened and judged during the Pre-Pageant Night held last August 14, 2011 at the New Maqueda Bay Hotel and Restaurant.

Of this twelve, four have excelled in the competitions that will determine the winners for four of the special awards namely Best in Swimsuit, Best in Casual Wear, Best in Talent and Miss Eloquence. It has been customary  to name the three best candidates in each category. The winners will then be announced during the Coronation Night.

Candidates number four (4) Lou Dominique Piczon, nine (9) Glennah Avenido, and eleven (11) Odette Tarrayo stood out in the swimsuit and casual wear competitions. On the other hand, contestant number five (5) Jasmin Japzon, along with Avenido and Tarrayo are the strong contenders for the Best in Talent and Miss Eloquence awards.
