Pageant

Miss Vietnam of Southern California

The Miss Vietnam of Southern California (MVSC) or Hoa Khôi Liên Trường (HKLT) is a prestigious Vietnamese American Cultural & Scholastic Pageant hosted by the Union of the Vietnamese Student Associations (UVSA). Our primary focus is to elevate the Vietnamese American female as a national symbol of beauty and pride captured internally and externally through her poise, grace, intellectual strength, and individuality. Hosted annually at the largest Tet Festival in the world, the MVSC pageant serves to promote Vietnamese culture through language, music, dance, and the Vietnamese traditional dress, the áo dài.
