The pageant will be held on Feb. 2 at the Madrid Community Center. The application deadline is Jan. 18. For an application or questions contact Brianne Donnelly-Tulley or Courtney Donnelly, St. Lawrence County Maple Queen Coordinators, at 528-2414 or [email protected]
If there are any events one wishes to have the queen or princess present and deliver a presentation or speech on Maple please contact the coordinators.
The queen and princess have a code of conduct to follow while holding the title. The are a few required events for them to attend such as the St. Lawrence County Fair, State Pageant, Maple Weekend and the Maple School. It is a great way for them to promote and educate the public about different aspects of the maple industry. The girls will also go to schools to present to students.
