The SM Little Stars 2011 winners recently toured China as part of the cultural exchange program between the Philippines and China.
SM has malls in mainland China.
The top three experienced a five day tour of Xiamen, Jinjiang, and GuLangyu Island. Grand Prize winners Steven Ocampo and Rowena Grado, and first runner up winner Kate Gellian Vinas enjoyed the tour with their parents.
The kids had a chance to tour Taopi Entertainment Center before travelling to SM City Xiamen to watch the grand finals of SM Little Stars, where they bonded with their counterparts from SM’s China malls. They then traveled to SM Jinjiang and Gulangyu Island, the Island of Music known for its scenic beauty and appreciation for music.
They had also a good time at Xiamen’s Sunlight Rock and Shuzhuang Garden, Piano Musuem and 44 bridge. A tour will not be complete without shopping at Zhongshan Road, a famous place for being the ultimate street to shop at with a wide range of stalls to choose from.
This experience not only allowed them to learn about different cultures and travel to different cities but also open doors to careers in modeling, singing, dancing and acting at such a young age.
This year, SM Supermalls will again give kiddie talents the chance to shine in the SM Little Stars 2012 search. Over P2.5 million and more exciting prizes at stake for the winners: P150,000 cash and shopping money, P10,000 worth of gift certificates from Toy Kingdom and SM Storyland, Scholarship Ice skating lessons for six sessions, Bowling Summer Scholarship, Childrens’ prep singing training at Center for Pop Music, College Grant from National University worth P320,000, Basic Personality Development Program from John Robert powers and of course a free trip to China.
