The search this year has undertones of environmental care and local culture. A tree planting activity was held Sunday afternoon after an immersion session on the environment and on Bikol history. At stake are the titles: Miss Bicolandia 2007 (Burakan nin Bikol 2007); First Runner-Up (Enot na Dawani nin Bikol); Second Runner-UP (Ika-Duwang Dawani nin Bikol); Third Runner-Up (Ikatolong Dawani nin Bikol); Fourth Runner-Up (Ika-Apat na Dawani nin Bikol).

Special awards include: Miss Talent (Dawani nin Tadong); Miss Photogenic (Dawani nin Kaangayan); Miss Friendship (Dawani nin Katotod); Mutya ng Kalikasan (Dawani nin Kalidongan); Best in Gown (Orog Karahay sa Sayong); Best in Production Attire (Orog Karahay sa Paghablon); Best in Swimsuit (Orog Karahay sa Swimsuit); Best in Designer (Orog Karahay sa Paghowad).

Way back in the `30s the title was given to one who had raised the biggest number of votes. It was only in the last decade of this century that the title-holder of the search was one of beauty and talent. (tpna)
