This year 14 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 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.
Last Wednesday, candidates attended our judge’s interviews. Each candidate spent 5 minutes with our judging panel and answered a multiple of questions. Candidates were then scored individually by each judge on their application, platform essay and interview. We will name both our Runner-Up and Harvest Queen at Saturday’s Harvest Festival. Crowning takes place at 10:30am at the stage area just west of Wolfforth City Hall at 302 Main Street.
