Apple Festival Royalty Court looking for contestants

2012's Apple Blossom and Johnny Appleseed at last year's Apple Festival.

It’s time again to begin the search for the new Apple Festival Royalty Court. The Royalty Court will reign for a period of one year. They will have the opportunity to travel, learn about other communities in our state, meet many new friends, and gain experience speaking in public as they share with others information about our festival.

The Apple Festival Royalty Court consists of an Apple Queen (grades 9-11), Apple Princess (grades 6-8), Johnny Appleseed and Apple Blossom (both grades K-1). All court members must be residence of the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District. Past Royalty members which have previously held a title (this excludes runners-up) may not compete for that particular title again. They may however compete for a different title.
