Four local teens are vying for the title of Miss Hanover, and the opportunity to represent the Wright County river town in local festivals around the region for 2014-2015.
Two of the four will be awarded their crows at coronation during Hanover Harvest Festival, set for 3 p.m. at the Settlers Park Main Stage on Saturday, Aug. 2.
The candidates are:
Mallory Gutknecht, sponsored by Maverick Construction;
Mackenzie Malewicki, sponsored by the Hanover Fire Department;
Sydney Segelstrom, sponsored by Comfort Matters; and
Danialle Steman, sponsored by Roy C. Inc.
Selections are based on awards and accomplishments, community activities, offices/club memberships/organizational involvement, and future educational and career aspirations. Contestants will be further judged on such things as poise, dress, speech, interview answers and their impromptu answer to a question drawn randomly.
The new twosome will take over for Krystle Brown, Miss Hanover, and Emma Gutknecht, current princess.
This is the fifth year for the Hanover Royalty Program.
