FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 29, 2013
SAN DIEGO - The Annual Miss San Diego Pageant has been postponed, pageant organizer announced today. The Vietnamese-American Youth Alliance, which produces the annual pageant in conjunction with the San Diego Tet Festival, said that lower participant turn outs and time constraints are the reason for the postponement.
"We regret that we have to postpone the pageant this year," Festival Director Alexander Nguyen said. "This is the first time in our history that we have to postpone the pageant, but ultimately we feel this is the right thing to do. We have a standard that we hold ourselves to, and we would not feel right to put on a second rate pageant."
The pageant was supposed to take place on the evening of Feb. 16, the second of the day of Tet Festival. Organizers say that they are still accepting applications for the pageant, which will be held at a later date to be determined this year. In place of the pageant will be fashion shows, showcasing the beauty of the traditional Vietnamese Long Dress or Ao Dai.
The winner of Miss Vietnam receives a $3,000.00 scholarship as well as representing the Vietnamese community at civic functions. To compete, contestants needs to be at least 1/8 Vietnamese, between 17 to 26 years of age and have not married.
