Miss Philippines is crowned Miss Earth 2008
"Environmental knowledge is something that all of us must share, but most importantly we must teach the youth that this is something that we should instill in them so that in the near future they will be the ones to take care of our mother Earth." she said.
The coronation night was hosted by singer Billy Joe Crawford, Miss Earth 2004 Pricilla Meirelles, and Miss Earth Canada 2006 Riza Santos.
Miss Earth is one of the three largest beauty pageants in the world in terms of the number of nationa-level competitions to participate in the world finals.
Philippines’ Karla Paula Henry is this year’s Miss Earth, during the Coronation Night held at the Clark Expo Ampitheater in Pampanga.
Henry bested 84 other contestants from all over the world, succeeding Canada’s Jessica Trisko, Miss Earth 2007. She also earlier won the Miss Earth Designers Award and Miss Photogenic special award.
Miss Tanzania, Miriam Odemba was Miss Earth Air (1st runner-up); Miss Mexico, Abigail Elizalde was Miss Earth Water (2nd runner-up), and Miss Brazil Tatiane Alves won Miss Earth Fire (3rd runner-up).
Rounding up the pageant’s top eight finalists are Mariana Rodriguez (Miss Colombia), Adriana Reveron (Miss Spain), Nasanin Nuri (MIss Switzerland), and Daniela Torrealba (Miss Venezuela).
In the final question and answer round, the final four were asked on what they would tell US president-elect Barack Obama about the state of the global environment if ever they were to meet.
Henry responded by saying she would encourage Obama to implement environmental knowledge in the curriculum of schools not just in the US, but also in the Philippines.
The participants themselves are involved with environmental causes. The title holder dedicate their year to promote environmental projects and to address issues concerning the environment. Great!!!
