The Miss Latina Hawaii Scholarship Pageant serves as a preliminary pageant for the Miss Hawaii Pageant and the Miss America Organization. Our organization gives out three titles each year (Miss Latina Hawaii, Miss Paradise Latina & Miss Aloha Latina). All titleholders have an opportunity to become a candidate in the Miss Hawaii Scholarship Pageant.
The Miss Latina Hawaii Scholarship Pageant has been established to provide Latina/Hispanic women the opportunity to grow as well-rounded individuals. Through participation in this program, candidates volunteer their time with local communities, experience important societal issues, develop professional and personal skills and showcase their talents. It also, gives our young Latinas an opportunity to expand their education though Scholarships that may help defray their financial burdens.
Since the founding of our Miss Latina Hawaii Organization in October 2011 we are very proud of our young ladies; our First Miss Latina Hawaii was Joleen Iwaniec, that year she made the finals & became 3rd Runner-up & won the talent division in the Miss Hawaii Pageant.
