Miss Philippines is Miss Earth 2008

Congratulations to Karla Paula Henry of the Philippines for winning the Miss Earth 2008. We are very proud of you. She bested 84 beauties from around the world.

Here's the final question in Miss Earth 2008 and the answer of Miss Philippines:

Question: "What would you tell US president-elect Barack Obama about the state of the global environment if ever you were to meet him?"

Answer: “Environmental knowledge is something that all of us must share, but most importantly we must teach the youth that this is something that we should instill in them so that in the near future they will be the ones to take care of our mother Earth." - Karla Henry, represented Philippines

Miss Tanzania, Miriam Odemba is Miss Earth Air (1st runner-up); Miss Mexico, Abigail Elizalde is Miss Earth Water (2nd runner-up), and Miss Brazil Tatiane Alves is Miss Earth Fire (3rd runner-up).

The pageant was held last November 9 at the Clark Expo Ampitheater in Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines.
