The "Pageant" was originally founded in 1904 when a young girl was chosen as "Miss Liberty" on the morning of July 4th. The Chamber of Commerce made the selection.
In 1910 the name of the Pageant was changed to "Miss Huntington Beach" as the city incorporated.
From 1910 to 1947, the Chamber of Commerce ran the Miss Huntington Beach Pageant.
In 1947 the Chamber turned the Pageant over to the JC's who orchestrated the event until the JC's were disbanded in 1976.
In 1977, the Sand Dollars (formed as the Women's Division of the Chamber) took over and has hosted the Miss HB Scholarship Pageant.
In 2018, the Sand Dollars, revised the title of the pageant to the Miss Huntington Beach Scholarship Competition to better match evolving program being offered to contestants and title holders.
