For over 55 years, young women from throughout the United States have come to San Francisco to compete for prizes and scholarships in the annual Miss Chinatown USA Pageant. The winners become goodwill ambassadors for the Chinese community throughout the Lunar New Year. This year’s Miss Chinatown USA Pageant will be held at Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco on Feb. 8.
Ka Man Lee, who is the Miss Chinese Seattle Queen 2013, will join the event as a representative for Seattle. (end)
