What if your child dreams to be an "artista" someday?
It is very common for children to aspire to become a celebrity or artist someday. After all, they see their idols and favorite celebrities on TV and movies all the time.
If your child aspires to be one, here is his/ her chance to become the next big star.
On its 12th year of celebrating talented Filipino kids, SM Supermalls unwraps a bigger and more exciting SM Little Stars as the kiddie-talent search gives away over PhP9.5 million worth of prizes, which include 2 brand new Chevrolet Trax, trips to China for 2, college scholarships from the National University, and PhP200,000 worth of cash and SM gift certificates – announced at a media launch on February 28 in SM Megamall.
SM Little Stars continues to be a platform for kids to share talents, enhance their personalities, and develop their confidence. The competition not only recognizes the shining and brightest kids, but it also celebrates the start of their journey in becoming stars in the future as they inspire more children to discover their innate talents.
The kids will also have the chance to be guided by celebrity mentors and a series of workshops to help develop their talents and boost self-confidence, as well as to encourage them to have fun and make new friends!
