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 2015-2016.
Two of the four will be awarded their sash and crown at coronation during Hanover Harvest Festival, set for 3 p.m. at the Settlers Park Main Stage on Saturday, Aug.1.
Belle Wanke, sponsored by Maverick Construction;
Crystal Malewicki, sponsored by the Hanover Fire Department and Roy C. Inc.;
Shannon Labat, sponsored by Comfort Matters and M. Miller Trucking; and
Nicole Christenson, sponsored by ServPro and the Hanover Athletic Association.
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 Mallory Gutknecht Miss Hanover, and Mackenzie Malwecki, current princess.
This is the sixth year for the Hanover Royalty Program.
