Miss Marigold applications are due Friday, June 11th

This year the Marigold Festival Committee is proud to crown our 35th Miss Marigold Queen. Beginning in 1973, the Miss Marigold Pageant has become a long-standing tradition of recognizing talented and bright young women with a chance to represent our community during the Marigold Festival weekend and throughout the year. We are especially proud of the pageant's focus on scholarship and in an effort to further recognize that commitment, this year's Queen scholarship will be $2,000 in an effort to better keep pace with the ever-increasing cost of higher education. Entry forms are available at the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce and are due June 11th, 2010.
