The Miss Asian Las Vegas Pageant is the city's premier beauty and culture pageant for Asian-Americans. The event provides a platform to help build leadership, friendships, community involvement, etiquette and talent for its contestants. In addition to traditional pageant rounds such as interviews, swimwear and evening gowns, the production will feature glamorous displays of Asian culture and costume. This year, the pageant will have representatives from Teen, Miss, Ms. and Mrs. categories with ages ranging from 15 to 52. A grand prize winner will be chosen in each category as well as a Chinese representative who will go on to compete in the Miss Chinatown USA Pageant.
At last year's inaugural event, more than 600 guests came together to support the pageant and its contestants. Catherine Ho was crowned the 2013 winner and has advanced to compete in the national Miss Asian America Pageant taking place in San Francisco on Saturday, Aug. 2. Elisa Chan was awarded the Miss Chinese Las Vegas and competed in the Miss Nevada USA Pageant last January where she won Miss Photogenic, Miss Congeniality and Best Evening Gown. Connie Tsang was awarded a place to compete in Miss Chinatown USA Pageant in San Francisco last February.
