On March 8th, The Miss San Francisco and Miss San Francisco Outstanding Teen Pageant was held in the Mission District at the Victoria Theatre. The Victoria Theatre is San Francisco’s oldest operational theatre built in 1908. Located just two blocks away is SF’s oldest continuously operating movie theater, The Roxie Theater.
For the Miss San Francisco competition there were a total of 13 contestants and 3 contestants in the Miss OT competition. The scores for competition are based on 5 areas: Presentation and Community Achievement (Private Interview), Lifestyle and Fitness (Swimsuit), Artistic Expression (Talent), Presence and Poise (Evening Wear), and Knowledge and Understanding (Q+A).
Competition throughout the program was extremely stiff as all the contestants did really well answering their questions in the Q&A segment. The most entertaining part of the program had to be the talent portion. The on stage talent was so diverse that the show took on a whole new dynamic and resembled that of a variety show. The talented ladies showcased piano, opera, songs, monologues, Polynesian dance, lyrical dance, modern dance, and tap dance.
New for the Miss San Francisco Pageant is the introduction and addition of a new title, Miss County of San Francisco. The order in which the titles are ranked; Miss San Francisco, Miss Golden Gate, and Miss County of San Francisco. All three will have the opportunity to compete in the Miss California competition in Fresno, CA. If she happens to win that competition, she will then move on to represent California in the Miss America Pageant. Each representative from each state can only compete on the national level once.
