A new national pageant for kids and teens is on the making. Established a year ago, Little and Miss Stellar Pageant was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. From the original 64 candidates competing in three categories – Little Miss, Pre-Teen and Teen, only 19 competed when the pageant commenced virtually last March. The inaugural coronation night was held last May.

Organized by Rimah Talents Studio Management, Little and Miss Stellar pageant is back with its second edition. The pageant advocacy is Youth Empowerment. It was virtually launched last July 24, 2021, this time with 61 candidates from all over the country.

“I am happy that even during the pandemic, the RIMAH Talents Management project will continue. It was supposed to be a face to face pageant on the first edition but due to the lockdowns, we opted to have a virtual pageant. It was a successful even if our original number of candidates was down to just 19 for the 3 categories”, said pageant organizer Shirimah Dimarunsing. “We have good feedbacks with the Season 1 because our pageant is fair and square as we had credible judges – mostly pageant media. I am hoping that our Season 2 would be as successful as Season 1. My plan is that someday Miss and Little Miss Stellar would go international”, added Dimarunsing.
