Miss Silliman 2022
Miss Silliman 2022 marks the 76th celebration of one of the longest-running school pageants in Asia. Nine lovely candidates from the different departments in the university participated in this year’s search for a new queen. The pageant is was held last August 20, 2022, at the Claire Isabel McGill Luce Auditorium.
Miss Silliman is a yearly event held as part of the Silliman Founder’s Day celebration. Due to the pandemic, the pageant was paused in the year 2020. Meanwhile, the first ever virtual pageant was held in the year 2021 where Miss Mayumi Mari V. Maghuyop from the College of Performing and Visual Arts won the title as Miss Silliman 2021 Diamond Jubilee.
Miss Silliman Pre-Pageant
The Preliminary Competition started past seven o’clock in the evening. The program started with an upbeat production number where the candidates introduced themselves before the new set of audience and judges. Unlike most times at the Luce Auditorium, the resounding cheers and howls from the spectators were heard as signs of support.
After the production number, the candidates went backstage to prepare for their Speech/ Interview and for their Talent Presentation. To keep the audience on their toes, the candidates were alternated with one production and one talent portion. For this gallery, we will separate the two different portions of the competition.
After about three hours, the show was over and the top three were awarded a bouquet of flowers. The Miss Silliman Coronation Night will be celebrated on August 26, 2022 at the Lamberto Macias Sports and Cultural Complex.
