Those who are interested in becoming a candidate for Queen Genevieve should respond to posters and newspaper announcements that will be distributed throughout the Mid-Ohio Valley inviting candidates, ages 17 to 22 years of age, to participate for the opportunity to earn scholarship money toward college.

The winner of the Queen Genevieve competition will be chosen by a panel of judges at the scholarship pageant to be held at the Lafayette Hotel ballroom on Friday, August 11, 2017, and will be open to the public at 6:30 p.m. The scores are tabulated by a local accounting firm. The selection of Queen Genevieve will be announced at the Coronation Ceremony, Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. on the barge. The Queen candidates must be enrolled in the fall to an accredited educational institution.

We are pleased to be able to award this year’s winner a $1,500 scholarship, 1st place a $750 scholarship, 2nd place a $500 scholarship, for a total of $3,250.00 in scholarship money. We wish to thank all the businesses whose contributions make this pageant possible by their contributions.
