The Coronation Night was held last August 26, 2023 at Lamberto Macias Sports and Cultural Complex. Hundreds if not thousands of students, parents, and guests attended the grand event. Each department brought their own flags, lights, drums, horns and other noise making devices just to show support to their favorite candidate.
With the smooth organization of the Miss Silliman Committee, the show started past seven o’clock and went on a fast pace. First the production number. Then followed by the statement wear. Now you might wonder, what is a “statement wear”? It is an attire put together by the students and handlers themselves portraying a certain issue that is relevant to today’s society.
After that, a quick picture analysis was made to determine the top 5 of the competition. Each candidate had to give their own input and opinion regarding each picture flashed on the screen. It was the most awaited portion of the competition, since it showcases the wits and confidence of each ladies on stage.
The next portion of the competition was the evening gown. Each lady graced the stage in their beautiful fire-red gowns. The top 5 candidates were chosen and not long, the final question was asked. A few intermission numbers were put on stage to give time as the judges picked the rightful winner.
