This year 10 Frenship High School Seniors are competing for our Annual Harvest Festival Queen Scholarship! These ladies have put in so much work to have their chance to be a part of this long-standing tradition. Besides completing their application and submitting a letter of reference, our candidates also sell raffle tickets. This year’s raffle winner, to be drawn on Saturday, October 19 at the Harvest Festival, will win $1000! Queen’s also must submit a short platform essay covering a topic of their choice that is important in their lives.
On Wednesday, candidates will attend our judge’s interviews. Each candidate will spend 5 minutes with our judging panel and answer a multiple of questions. Candidates are then scored individually by each judge on their application, platform essay and interview. The Chamber of Commerce will name both our Runner-Up and Harvest Queen on Saturday, October 19 at our Annual Harvest Festival. Crowning takes place at 10:30am at the stage area just west of Wolfforth City Hall at 302 Main Street. Please join us in wishing all these young ladies the best of luck!
