For the 10th anniversary of the contest, Top 7 will meet the questions of conduct from the previous year's competitions. Miss Earth 2010 drew a question in the behavioral contest of Miss Earth 2002: "For you, what is more important: sunrise or sunset?"

"I will obviously choose sunrise because whenever we see the sunrise, people will think about a new day filled with energy. A new day offers 24 valuable hours to do good things for ourselves and other people." – Nicole Faria, represented India.
