If your child is aged between 4 and 7 and possesses a talent that can captivate the world, SM Supermalls is searching for YOU!

This isn't just any talent showcase – it's the largest mall-based children's talent hunt in the Philippines, conducted annually across SM malls, including SM City Marilao, SM City Baliwag, and SM Center Pulilan.
