To end the month-long celebration of this year’s Women’s Month, Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff – ECAN Education and Extension Division (PCSDS-EEED) successfully organized and hosted the Search for Miss WomEnvironment 2023 at Palawan Sustainable Development Training Institute (PSDTI), Irawan on the last day of March 2023.
Ms. OED stood out and won two minor awards: Best in Production Number and Best in Formal (Filipiniana) Attire, while Ms. AFD received the Best in National Costume Award.
The top three candidates were Ms. AFD, Ms. OED, and Ms. EEED, each of whom was asked a final question to determine the winner. Ms. EEED emerged as the victor with her impressive answer to the question: “What is the best piece of advice you have ever received, and why?”
