In each of the six years we have held a MAO local license, at least one of our titleholders has made the top 11 at Miss California. One of our titleholders made it to the top 7, two were 3rd runner up, one was 2nd runner up.

MacKenzie Freed, Miss California 2018, was our titleholder twice before being crowned Miss California.
