After being crowned, the Titleholders embark on a year unlike anything else, receiving exciting prizes and services, as well as the honor of representing the Greater Kemah Area in the MISS TEXAS USA® pageant or MISS TEXAS TEEN USA® pageant (subject to meeting all the eligibility requirements).

The Titleholder becomes a representative of the pageant for one year, meeting many new people, participating in official charity and social events, potentially appearing on television, and getting the education, experiences and values to help fulfill her future career goals.

The Miss Kemah and Miss Kemah Teen pageants have a very successful 7 year history of excellence!

  • Since our first pageant in 2012, every Miss Kemah, and almost every Miss Kemah Teen, has placed either Top 15, Top 5, or won the State Title.

  • 2016 Miss Kemah was crowned MISS TEXAS USA® 2017

  • 2015 Miss Kemah Teen was crowned MISS TEEN USA® 2016

The Miss Kemah Pageant is looking for ambassadors to represent not only the City of Kemah, but the Greater Houston / Bay Area and the state of Texas. The winners may not score the highest in any one particular category but will do well in all of the categories throughout the pageant weekend. They will be young women who possess the entire package of poise, personality, intelligence and beauty. They should understand that, along with the prizes and glamour, there comes a responsibility to the pageant system, incredible sponsors, the community, and beyond.

Pageant judges spend time with each delegate to learn about her successes, talents, goals and ambitions. Attention is focused on her poise, charm, self-confidence and her ability to communicate, as well as the substance of her answers.

  • Miss Photogenic (to be selected from photos in the program book and in-person judging)

  • Interview
