in Events

Registration opens for the 2024 Miss Orange County Scholarship Pageant, which will be held on  April 7, 2024, at Julie Rogers Theater, 765 Pearl St. in Beaumont.

In 1981, the Mauriceville Crawfish Festival Association hosted the first Crawfish Festival Queen Pageant as a fundraising project. It quickly became an annual tradition in conjunction with the Mauriceville Crawfish Festival. In 2018, The Mauriceville Crawfish Festival Association became a federally recognized nonprofit under the name Mauriceville Heritage Association and changed the format to the annual festival. In conjunction with those changes, the Annual Mauriceville Crawfish Festival Queen became Miss Orange County to fully represent our area. For 42 years, their association has produced not just a pageant, but a moving experience that remains in the hearts and on the minds of local young women for generations.

There are a maximum of 10 contestants per division. Ages 0-8 are open to anyone. Ages-9-18 are open to Orange County Residents only. If sign-ups are low by February 1, 2024,  they will open ages 9-15 to any residents.

Application and payment forms can be found online here.
