Morganton Festival Scholarship Competition Crowns Winners | Local News
Special for the News Herald
It was an afternoon of poise and elegance that culminated with the Coronation of Royalty at the 2021 Morganton Festival.
After a year of absence due to COVID, the Historic Morganton Festival Inc. and the Morganton Festival Scholarship Competition Committee hosted the third Miss Morganton Festival Scholarship Competition on August 23.
Held in anticipation of the start of the historic Morganton Festival so that new queens have the opportunity to participate in the festival and publicize their individual service platforms.
The Morganton Festival Scholarship Competition is open to any young woman between the ages of 7 and 23 residing in North Carolina. Each candidate participated in a personal interview with a jury. It was an opportunity for the competitors to share their service platform, as well as for the judges to get to know each participant. Contestants also participated in a variety of competitions, including casual wear, talent wear, evening wear / party wear, and stage questions.
The competition celebrates strong and engaged young women who are ready to represent the community as a goodwill ambassador and become a role model today while strengthening our city for tomorrow.
The Morganton Festival Queens not only work to promote the Morganton Festival and the Morganton community throughout the year, but they also spend time working on their personal community service platforms and embracing the spirit of ‘giving back’ to our community.
