Children's Pageant

The Children’s Pageant is a traditional UVSA Tết Festival Contest in which children from the ages of 4 to 11 participate by wearing a variety of Vietnamese traditional attire and showcasing their culture. Top contestants will move on to show off their talents through singing, dancing, reciting Vietnamese poetry, and much more. All children will be rewarded with a gift for their time and participation in the spotlight of the community.

Floral Arrangement

The art of floral arrangement is different for everyone. The placement of a rose, a cherry blossom, and a fern can change the appearance of the arrangement to one’s creativity and imagination. Springtime is best known for renewal, rebirth, regrowth of Mother Nature and lovely blooming of flowers. Demonstrate your creativity and artistic abilities with the Floral Arrangement contest!

Stay tuned for the registration information for all of our contests!
