SM Supermalls’ search for the next biggest, brightest, and most talented kids in the country is back.

On July 6, the retail giant opened the pre-registration for SM Little Stars, its annual nationwide talent search for kids aged four to seven.

Now on its 14th year, SM Little Stars has become a platform for some of the country’s biggest stars who are excelling in singing, acting, and modeling.

“SM is and will always be a safe and nurturing place for the kids. Through SM Little Stars, we are staying true to our commitment to making the kids’ malling experience fun, memorable, and rewarding for them and their families. We want to make sure that this will be worth remembering for them,” said SM Supermalls Senior Vice President for Marketing Joaquin San Agustin.

SM Little Stars Project Head Hanna Carinna Sy also said, “After an absence of three years, we are happy to be together again to launch what is undoubtedly the biggest kiddie talent search in the country, which will be held in 70 malls from Baguio and Tuguegarao to Davao and Cagayan de Oro in Mindanao.”
