On August 9, 19 adorable and talented kids will compete in the grand finals of the search for SM Little Stars 2015 at the SM Mall of Asia Center Stage.
Now on its eighth year, SM Little Stars is a yearly nationwide search for cute, bright and promising kids aged four to seven in a talent competition, which has also become an avenue for brighter things. Past SM Little Stars winners are now shining in the field of acting and modeling.
Over P3.5 million worth of great prizes await grand prize winners—a boy and a girl—comprised of P200,000 worth of cash and shopping money; a five-day and four-night trip to China for two including round-trip tickets, hotel accommodations and tours; and a four-year college scholarship grant from National University. The winner will also receive P15,000 worth of gift certificates from Toy Kingdom, ride-all-you-can passes for one year from Storyland, and an overnight stay for two with complimentary breakfast from Microtel.
The pageant will be hosted by TV celebrity Jasmine Curtis Smith, with an impressive roster of judges who will also act as mentors to the children. They are movie and TV director Mac Alejandre (mentor in TV/film acting), Trumpets Playshop President Audie Gemora (mentor in voice and theatricality), Gelli De Belen (mentor in hosting), Joshua Zamora (mentor in Dance) and Miss Universe 2010 4th runner up Venus Raj.
