©2019 Miss American Scholar

ABOUT OUR PAGEANT

Scholar: Noun

1:   A person who attends a school or studies under a teacher

2a: A person who has done advanced study in a special field

b:   A learned person

3:   A holder of a scholarship

A Different Approach

Miss American Scholar was created to provide bright young women in Hawai'i an opportunity to exhibit their accomplishments and inner strengths.    We strive to highlight the best in our delegates and queens. Our main focus is proficiency in interview, public speaking, philanthropy and onstage confidence.

Optional Competitions

In addition to the primary competitions of our pageant, we provide optional competitions for delegates to show off their unique creativity and skills. Some examples of these optionals are Talent competition and our Fashion Runway. Winners of these optional competitions receive on-stage recognition and an award on pageant night.

No Swimsuit

We know it can be uncomfortable to model a swimsuit onstage, and don't believe a swimsuit is necessary in order to show off your gorgeous figure.  Instead of bikinis, we judge fitness and health with delegates sporting fun athletic wear.
