Miss USA

Julie Kuo is Miss Hawaii USA 2017

There are now 26 contestants that have been crowned for the upcoming Miss USA pageant! Julie Kuo of Honolulu will have the opportunity to represent the state of Hawaii at Miss USA 2017.

The national competition will be held in June of 2017.


Hawaiʻi is the most recent state to start competing at Miss USA, as it first competed in 1962. Prior to this, delegates were sent to Miss Universe. Despite the late start, it has been one of the most successful: Hawaiʻi's first Miss USA, Macel Wilson, came the first year the state competed. There have been four Miss USA winners from Hawaiʻi, one of three states with four titles (only second to Texas and California).
