Queen’s Scholarship Fund

Greetings Water Carnival Supporter,

The 77th Annual Hutchinson Jaycee Water Carnival is rapidly approaching and our excitement is building as each day passes. We are eternally thankful to Maplewood Academy for graciously allowing us to use their facilities for our pageant and coronation these past two years however we are delighted to announce that we will be back at the all new Hutchinson High School auditorium in 2019. This years’ pageant will take place Friday, June 14th featuring eight wonderful and deserving candidates along with the announcement of the new Mr. Hutchinson and Woman of the Year. On Sunday, June 16th our current Queen Erin Westlund and Princess Olivia Watzke will pass along their crowns to the new Miss Hutchinson and Hutchinson Princess.

As you likely know, our royalty work tirelessly throughout their reign representing Hutchinson in area communities. This year our Royal Family made nearly 20 appearances from Willmar to Minneapolis and from Anoka to Winthrop. That’s a lot of smiles and waves and we are incredibly proud of the way our Royal Family represented the community we so love.

With that being said, we kindly ask that you consider participating in this years’ Water Carnival by contributing to the Queen’s Scholarship Fund. This fund relies solely on donations like yours to provide scholarships for our Queen and Princess. Those choosing to donate $50 or more will be recognized in the pageant program as a Sustaining Sponsor and offered two seats in the preferred section. Those choosing to donate $25 or more will be recognized in the pageant program as Scholarship Patrons and will also be offered two seats in the preferred section. Although this section is reserved the individual seats are on a first come, first served basis. All tickets will be held at will call and will be available for pickup beginning at 6 p.m. As our VIP guest you will be allowed to select your seats starting at 6 p.m. before seating for the general public begins at 6:30.
