That’s our video from last July, as West Seattle Hi-Yu Summer Festival Queen Georgia Mitchell and Princesses Kelly Nealson and Veronica Pupava were coronated. Who will get the crowns at the next coronation? The process has begun, now that applications are being accepted. Coordinator Shirley Enebrad forwarded two important forms for anyone interested; the application (here) and the accompanying letter (here). The application form fully describes qualifications and expectations – but here are the key points:
Applicant must be a female 17 years of age and not have reached her 23rd birthday by August 1st. Applicant can never have been married and must be single (not engaged) at the time of coronation. These limits are based on the Seafair rules, since the Hi-Yu Queen will be participating in the Seafair Scholarship Program the following year. She must be attending high school or a high school graduate; attending school, working in, or a resident of West Seattle. The West Seattle area includes the Alki Peninsula to the Burien City limits. This is a varied border, within the following zip codes: 98106, 98116, 98126, 98136, 98146. If you have any questions about your eligibility, please contact the organization by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Prizes include scholarship $. The deadline to enter is March 31st.
