The Miss Bois d’Arc competition provides a local forum for today’s young women to express their viewpoints, talents and accomplishments during the competition and to the public at large during the ensuing year. Hundreds of young women participate each year in the local pageants, culminating in the selection of local finalists who vie for the Miss Texas title each July. By entering this pageant, you are starting in the footsteps of becoming Miss Hunt County and possibly Miss Texas. Every contestant gains something by participating in the program – self-confidence, poise, and speaking skills are just a few examples. Our program emphasizes community service, good moral values, scholastic achievement and good sportsmanship.

The Bois d’Arc Bash is now in its 31st year. The Bash celebrates the bois d’arc tree and its fruit. It is pronounced “bodark” and is French for “bow wood”. It is also referred to as an Osage orange tree, hedge apple tree, and horse apple tree.

As we celebrate this tough tree we hope you will join us to create a scholarship pageant embracing this long Bash history and even longer and richer future.
