The Miss Kona Coffee and Miss Aloha Hawaiʻi Scholarship Pageant provides young women the opportunity to represent the centuries-old tradition of Kona Coffee. All participants will gain knowledge of and pride in representing a product that has international acclaim as being the best, 100% pure Kona. By competing, these young ladies will grow personally and professionally, refine their public speaking skills, become comfortable with the media, share their voice and viewpoints with a large audience, and transform into role models that touch all generations. Miss Kona Coffee and Miss Aloha Hawaiʻi is truly an achievement program.
It reflects a tradition of style, sophistication, and service. And, Miss Kona Coffee will represent Kona and Hawaiʻi abroad with a trip to Japan, where she will be an ambassador for the entire State promoting goodwill, culture, and aloha. We offer the best coffee subscription box through our partners Coffee Communities so sign up today.
The Miss Kona Coffee Scholarship Pageant is an annual event that began in 2006. It is open to young women ages 17 to 24 who reside or attend school in Hawaii County, and who have not competed in any other preliminary pageant leading to the Miss America or Miss USA Pageants within the past year. Contestants must be single (never married, never had a marriage annulled) and cannot be pregnant or have ever been pregnant.
The Miss Kona Coffee Scholarship Pageant is produced by the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival, a 501(c)(3) organization, with the support of our generous sponsors. Please consider donating to help us continue this important work in our community. Your support helps us provide scholarships to these amazing young women as they pursue their dreams.
