The City Tourism Operations Office (CTOO) announced Monday that there is no minimum height required for aspirants to the Mutya ng Dabaw 2024 pageant.
“Almost same lang gihapon ang atong guidelines nga gigamit last year, in fact, ang ato pang gitanggal further is ang atoang preference sa height requirement. Last time naa pata’y gibutang nga 5"4 in height but this time gitanggal na nato so anybody can join the pageant regardless of height (Our guidelines are almost the same as last year's, in fact, we have removed further the height requirement. Last time we required aspirants to be 5”4 height but this time we removed it. So anybody can join the pageant regardless of the height),” Romero said.
She also added that single, married, and single moms are allowed to join same as last year.
Romero invites aspirants to attend the Mutya ng Dabaw screening on February 8, Thursday at the Waterfront Insular Hotel.
“Na post na ang guidelines, uploaded na siya sa official page. Kung kinsa 'tong interested nga mu-join they can visit our office sa 4th floor Davao City Investment and Promotion Center (DCIPC) Building pwede sila magkuha og form, or download it from our official page (We have already posted the guidelines, it is already uploaded on our official page.
