Rudee Loop Welcomes Miss Fil Fest USA Pageant 2018!

Dear Fil Fest ,

Fil Fest USA is pleased to announce that we are looking for our very first Little Miss Fil Fest USA, Miss Teen Fil Fest USA, and Miss Fil Fest USA on October 14th, 2017.The event is open and free to the general public at Townbanke Fountain Park at Waterside, Norfolk Virginia. It will be a full day of cultural festivities with, The Miss FilFest Pageant USA as part of the entertainment program.

The pageant was created to help with raising funds for The Congressional Gold Medallions for the Filipino Veterans. The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest award bestowed by the U.S. Congress to an individual or group who performed a significant achievement that has an impact on American History and culture. We have many opportunities for the girls to help us reach the goal through sponsorship with ads or donations of any any amount in behalf of each girls name.

Pageant competition is a way for a girl to enhance their public speaking and also helps in developing your daughter's confidence and self-esteem. They also need time for developing friendships and learning to support their fellow sister. The pageant is here to celebrate our young ladies and the rich Filipino culture of The Hampton Roads

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve your daughters during this special time of The Miss Fil Fest USA Pageant. As a pageant competitor and crown receiver, I understand and have benefited greatly in my life from the opportunities bestowed through pageantry. Best of luck to all those competing for the crown at Miss FilFest USA.
