The host, Yvar Montecillo, asked each of the top three finalists during the recently concluded Miss Teen Gawahon 2013 beauty pageant. Before the results were announced, the judges had a tough time scrutinizing the girls according to the meticulous judging criteria: beauty 40%, charm 20%, poise 20%, and intelligence 20%. It’s quite interesting that, despite the title attached to the crown, two of them were a year or two shy of teenager. When asked why they joined Miss Teen Gawahon 2013, they said the organizers were already running out of time looking for candidates and they wanted to make the most of their summer vacation. Here’s her answer to the final question:

JERSEY ANNE ALLERA SALAZAR, 11 years old, Miss Teen Gawahon 2013 – International

“While the judges have their preference as for who deserves the crown tonight, I’d like them to know that I am very much ready to take on the duties and responsibilities of Miss Teen Gawahon 2013. I may still be a young girl, but I have what it takes to be a role model for all the girls not only here in Gawahon but everywhere.”
