Little Miss Philippines-Norway 2011

Fil-Norwegian stunner, Lynn Kristin Stroemsnes, took home the crown at the Little Miss Philippines-Norway 2011 in Storsalen, Oslo, Sunday, 18 September 2011.

The 11-year-old won over six other girls who were vying for the title and admitted that she is “happy, very happy” to hear the announcement that she won.

“I was surprised,” she told ABS-CBN Europe when asked if she expected to win.

Stroemsnes believed she deserved to win because she cares about the children in the Philippines. She had also sold the most tickets to the pageant among the contestants.

Some of her ambitions are, being a model, a journalist, a lawyer and “hopefully to be Miss Norway in the future,” she added.

Earlier on, Stroemsnes won the audience over with her snowboarding outfit and her rendition of a Jolo traditional dance. She was an early favorite, sweeping almost all the other awards; Miss Popularity, Best in Casual Wear, Best in Sports Wear, Best in Long Gown and Ms. Photogenic.

Winning 2nd runner up is Mary Ann Miranda and 3rd runner up is Jeanna Joyce Bergseth.

“It is important that the children have fun, that it not just a competition,” said Henrietta Garcia, former Little Miss Philippines Norway 2006 and judge.

However, all the contestants who were asked why they joined the contest, which is also a fund-raising event, seemed to understand that it was all for the good cause.

The Little Miss Philippines Norway pageant is organised by the Bantay Bata 163 Friends in Norway since 2006. The last pageant was held in 2009. All proceeds from the event will go to the Bantay Bata 163 projects of the ABS-CBN Foundation in the Philippines.
