42nd Annual Miss Chinatown Hawaii Scholarship Pageant

October 12, 2019

Each year, the Miss Chinatown Hawaii Pageant organization seeks outstanding women of Chinese descent to represent the community as semi-finalists in the Miss Chinatown Hawaii Pageant.  These semi-finalists receive training in Chinese history and culture, Chinese cooking, make-up, beauty and poise, interviewing, public speaking, self-defense, and personal development.  Through the help of numerous volunteers and experts in their fields, contestants are challenged mentally, physically, and spiritually during the months prior to the pageant.  In addition, participants develop valuable friendships that often last a lifetime.

Miss Chinatown Hawaii will represent the Chinese community in the Miss Hawaii pageant (a preliminary pageant for Miss America). The Miss America Pageant is the nation’s leading achievement program and the world’s largest provider of scholarship assistance for young women.

The Miss Chinatown Scholarship Pageant is the culmination of months of dedication by our contestants, who deepen their understanding and appreciation of their Chinese heritage, while developing leadership skills and participating in community service. They will compete in four phases: Question and Answer, Swimsuit, Talent, and Cheong Sam. An interview will be held prior to pageant night. Our Queens represent Hawaii’s Chinatown in local and national pageants such as the Miss Hawaii, the Miss Chinatown USA in San Francisco, and Miss America in Atlantic City.

This program is supported through the generosity of the Atherton Family Foundation and is presented by the Beatrice M. H. Young Foundation.
