Local media practitioners from the different newspapers, radio stations, and televisions gathered Thursday at the Golden Pine Hotel during the press presentation of the official candidates of the Ms. Baguio 2012.
The event also includes choosing the “Darling of the Press” where the media practitioners served as the judges.

She was once a candidate of the Ms. Benguet pageant where she also showed exemplary performance.
Twenty candidates were presented. They represent the 128 barangays of Baguio City.
The candidates are: Rubilyn Nguepan, Almoza, Joyah May Galisim, Ira Ocampo, Hanna Monroy, Hazel Ibay, Isleta, Regina Gacad, Mara Antigua, Kristine Addatu, Mariz Galvez, Heather Cortez, Nyzza Ramirez, Rhojane Malabed, Kimberley Mae Penchon, Ethel Jane Gonzales, Ellaiza Arrances, Jhuniya Viernes, Sarah Abdul, and Clea Mae Gatchalian.
Meanwhile, city officials were also present during the activity. With their presence, the candidates were given opportunity to air their concerns about the city.
The candidates suggested to the city officials to visit the different boarding houses in the locality to check the buildings’ stability, business permit, sanitation, garbage management and safety of the lady boarders.
Some candidates also suggested for officials to light the different roads in the city that are unlit yet. They complained on their different experiences when going home late at night along the dark roads of the city. They claimed the road situation presents danger not only to them but to the public as well.
