Miss Helotes Scholarship Pageant
The Miss Helotes Pageant began in the late 1960’s. Local Helotes girls compete for a spot on the court and a chance to represent Helotes around the area towns and festivals. The first few years saw the production staged at Floore’s Country Store. It moved to Helotes Elementary School then to Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. As it grew and as scholarships were added to the winner’s packages, larger areas were needed to stage the event. The pageant moved to John Marshall High School, to Taft High School, to the University of Texas at San Antonio, and finally to its present home at O’Connor High School.
Over the years, several dedicated local ladies have worked hard to bring this Pageant to the point that participation is a coveted life experience for young ladies from 9th grade through 12th grade. The scholarships and other prizes added to the package is another incentive for participation.
The Pageant has always been elegantly presented and outshines other local pageant presentations. The success of the Pageant has provided many accomplished young ladies who are successful in their lives and careers.
