Four Richmond residents competed for pageant glory last Thursday at the annual Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant.

Brenda Cheng, 24, Michelle Shek, 22, Tracy So, 20 and Elma Wang, 21, were among 10 finalists on stage at the Vancouver Convention Centre for the 20th annual competition.

Cindy Zhong, a 23-year-old student from Shanghai, China, was crowned the winner.

Each contestant had a chance to showcase their talents. Cheng drummed to the popular song "Gangnam Style," Shek played piano, So performed a hip-hop dance number and Wang delivered a Bollywood scarf dance.

Fairchild Television organized the event, which raised $450,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Also appearing on stage was Richmond's Gloria Tang, who won the title last year and went on to win the Miss Chinese International contest earlier this year. The Richmond High grad recently finished filming her first TV drama in Hong Kong.
