Hi Moms and Dads! Daddy Yashiro is here once again to give you details about the SM Little Stars. I have posted before about their search in over 38 different SM malls and take note that's all over the Philippines. You can check it out here SM Little Star and perhaps read it once again. Just like I mentioned before on my previous post this is a kiddie talent competition that is awesome for not only for the kids but also for the parents. This is one of those moments for parents to boast around their talented kids. The competition is also a great performance platform for kids from 4-6 years old to showcase their talents and also to mingle with other kids from different regions.
Well and since I haven't explained much better about this competition here are some facts and information about this kiddie competition that I'm sure parents would be interested to know more about it. SM Little Stars is spearheaded by Mr. Hans Sy,. The competition originated from SM China malls then later on adapted by the malls in the Philippines. Through the years, SM Little Stars keeps on growing as a contest through providing bigger prizes, kiddie workshops, TV exposures and having a cultural exchange program with SM China malls as winners from Philippines and China interact with each other during the Grand Finals, rendering a production number and individual performances of their talents.
Because of SM’s wide coverage in the country, aspiring kids have easy access to joining this mallwide kiddie talent competition and performance platform Aside from SM Little Stars’ objective to find the brightest, shining and aspiring little kids that we may dub as our "Little Stars", it also gives these kids a chance to showcase not only their talents, but also to have fun and gain confidence through various public exposures and workshops, and potentially win huge and exciting prizes. This makes SM Little Stars the perfect avenue to stardom.
