The City Government of Marikina and the Blue Company — currently in the midst of a flurry of activities in search for the ideal Marikenya to represent the City — will be crowning the new Miss Marikina 2018 on December 15.

The search aims to find the quintessential Marikenya to represent the City in promoting Marikina as one of the best cities in the Philippines in terms of good governance, excellent public service and as an ideal tourist destination.

The winners of the Miss Marikina search must also showcase beauty, wit, talent and community involvement that will make them suitable for joining and winning national beauty pageants such as Binibining Pilipinas, Miss Earth Philippines, Miss Tourism, among others.

There are 65 Marikenyas currently vying for the title and the number will be cut to 40 through a preliminary competition set tomorrow, Saturday, September 29 at the Marikina City Hall Quadrangle.

Attractive prizes are at stake. The Miss Marikina title holder will win P100,000 in cash; Miss Marikina Tourism will receive P75,000; Miss Marikina Earth, P50,000; while the First and Second Runners-Up will get P30,000 and P20,000, respectively.

Blue Company has lined up several pre-pageant activities including a visit to the Luwalhati ng Maynila Home for the Aged, clean-up drive at the Marikina River Park, swimming event, press launch and presentation of the candidates, tree planting, cycling event, feeding program, shoe company immersion, bloodletting, participating in the celebration of Marikina's Rehiyon-Rehiyon Festival in December, just to to name a few.
