The 38th annual Miss Kings County pageant will be held on Saturday, March 3. During this year’s competition, contestants will vie for a total of over $8,500 in cash, scholarships and gifts.

The Miss Kings County winner has the opportunity to go on to compete for the title of Miss California, as the event is a preliminary to the Miss America Pageant. The event is put on by the Miss Kings County Organization, a service oriented institution.
