Miss Santa Barbara 2016

and Miss Teen Santa Barbara

Contestant Info

October 1st (Finale)

Santa Barbara, Ca 

Ages 15-24

Introducing the first live Southern California HeartShine pageant, focused on supporting and celebrating driven young women in the Santa Barbara community and beyond. The HeartShine Foundation is a well-known, respected pageant system

with over 5 years of success, making pageants accessible to those of all experience levels. We are unique in what contestants are judged on: real-world skills such as interview, confidence,

poise, eloquence, and community service passion, and never

superficial considerations such as ‘beauty,’ physique, or

swimming-suit-strutting. We are open to all genders,

sexualities, races, and religions and regularly work alongside both local and national charities to increase access to the life-changing experience of pageantry.

Please join us today for the chance to become a Santa Barbara queen!
