Who will be crowned Miss Tustin on Saturday?

The Miss Tustin pageant may be a venerable local tradition, but even traditions can evolve. For the first time in its history, this year’s competition welcomed young women from cities other than home turf.

“We wanted to expand the boundaries within which we could recruit contestants,” Director Jen Kohlenberger said.

Miss Tustin leads to the Miss America contest, so Kohlenberger reached out to cities that don’t offer competitions on that track – including neighbors Irvine and Santa Ana.

“Tustin Unified has schools in those areas, and there are great colleges and universities there,” Kohlenberger said. “Those young women now have an opportunity to win scholarship money, as well.”

On Saturday night, Feb. 23, 11 college students will vie for for the title Miss Tustin 2019. Talents on display will range from baton twirling to poetry reading.

The event takes place 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Beckman High School Performing Arts Center, 3588 Bryan Ave., Irvine. Tickets are $20.
