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.

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.
