La Crosse woman named 'Miss Hmong America 2018'

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - One local resident is awarded the title of Miss Hmong America 2018.

A special celebration was held today for Ka Bao Vue to recognize her new title. The event included a speech from Vue and cultural Hmong dancers.

Vue competed for the title last December against 4 other women. Along with winning the title of 'Miss Hmong America', she also won 'Most Talented' and 'Miss Congeniality' titles. 

Vue says besides the great experiences she's had, it's what she was able to do in other communities that means the most to her.

She says, "bringing school supplies, like for example, to Laos and Thailand, where we came from, giving it back to the kids over there so that they can get a good education."

Vue is the first winner of the award from Wisconsin.
