Miss Philippines Earth 2012 Winners Crowned

MANILA, Philippines - Stephany Dianne Stefanowitz of Quezon City clinched the coveted Miss Philippines Earth title during the pageant's coronation night held at the SM Mall of Asia Center Stage on Sunday, May 28, besting 46 others.

Aside from Stefanowitz, the other titleholders were Glennifer Perido of Tabuk City (Ms. Philippines Air), Samantha Purvor of San Juan City (Ms. Philippines Water), Thoreen Halvorsen of Puerto Princesa City (Ms. Philippines Fire), and Candice Ramos of Vigan City (Ms. Philippines Eco-Tourism).

Stefanowitz, a 22-year old freelance model, designer, host and singer, was preceded by Athena Mae Imperial.

ABS-CBNNews.com reported on Sunday that Stefanowitz would be representing the country in the Miss Earth 2012 to be held in Indonesia. Online reports peg the coronation night on Oct. 28.

Meanwhile, the same article quoted the newly crowned Ms. Philippines Earth's answer to judge actress Rachel Grant's question, "If you were a superhero, what power would you choose to have, and how would you use it to save the earth?"

"Definitely, I would be a superhero with the power to clean up the whole environment. My advocacy is the conservation and preservation of our environment, not only for ourselves but of course, for the future generations as well. And as a citizen, it is essential for us to realize how today's decisions affect tomorrow's generation," Stefanowitz said.

Aside from Grant, the other judges reportedly were Valenzuela City councilor Shalani Soledad, actress Empress Schuck, Sen. Koko Pimentel, and journalist Ricky Alegre.
