In the uniquely designed space of the Huong River Theater in Hue, 21 contestants took turns to shine through the contests: ao dai, evening gown and interview for the top five contestants. The three most beautiful contestants in terms of appearance, talent and intelligence were named.

Through the outstanding performances which received many compliments from the audience, contestant Vo Thi Y Nhi (University of Foreign Languages, number 25) passed the remaining 20 contestants to claim the crown. First runner up and second runner up are Ho Diep Suong (University of Economics, number 31) and Vo Le Que Anh (University of Foreign Languages, number 03 ). After the contest, the Miss and two runner ups will be directly admitted into the final round of Miss Vietnam in the southern region.

From the beginning of the pageant, despite not having much catwalk experience, with a bright smile, Vo Thi Y Nhi still showed confidence through her manner and skill in performing in the ao dai and evening gown, as well as answering eloquently the interview question. 

And when it comes to the interview of the top 5 best contestants, when asked: “Ao Dai is a beauty of Hue girls. What do you do to preserve that beauty in your life today?”, Y Nhi answered: “The ao dai, especially the white ao dai, is always associated with the image of Hue University students, reserved, tender, smooth and beautiful. The ao dai is the national soul and national spirit, which also shows the national spirit of the Vietnamese people. As a Hue girl, when putting on ao dai, I am always proud and aware of preserving and promoting the traditional values ​​in parallel with receiving new values ​​of the new era”.

According to Dr. Nguyen Cong Hao - Head of Training & Student Affairs Department of Hue University, Deputy Head of the Organizing Committee, Head of the Board of Judges, coming back after a hiatus, the Beauty Pageant of Hue University 2020 returns to continue to honor the beauty of the spirit, personality, intellect, talent and boldness of Hue University female students, contributing to promoting the image of culture, tourism and education of Thua Thien Hue.
