The Miss Hawaii Teen USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state of Hawaii in the Miss Teen USA pageant.

Although Hawaii has made the cut fewer times than many states, they have achieved a number of high placings. Hawaii Teen USAs have been quite successful at Miss Teen USA, and are ranked fifteenth in terms of number and value of placements [1] and were ranked third in the 1980s [2]. Kelly Hu won the competition in 1985 and two Hawaii teens have placed 1st runner-up.

Kelly Hu was the first Hawaii teen to cross over to Miss Hawaii USA, and she was also the most successful. Only two other Teens have competed at Miss USA.
