The Chinese American Citizens Alliance Houston has presented the Miss Chinatown Houston Scholarship Pageant for over fifty years. The first Miss Chinatown Houston Pageant was part of a citywide picnic on August 15, 1971 at Sylvan Beach in La Porte, Texas. Today, the pageant is one of the highlight Gala events in the Houston community.
The pageant is highly respected and has earned the reputation of encouraging young Chinese-American women to develop their interpersonal skills, talent, and goals through higher education. The contestants are goodwill ambassadors for the community and serve as role models for the next generation. The C.A.C.A. Houston Lodge sponsors Miss Chinatown Houston to participate in the Miss Chinatown USA Pageant in San Francisco during the Chinese New Year.
