2019 Carrot Festival Royalty Contest
The Holtville Chamber of Commerce is currently accepting applications for our 2019 Carrot Festival Royalty. 2019 will be a historic year as this is the first time in our 73 years of hosting the festival that we will open the competition to young ladies through out the entire Imperial Valley! Young ladies will be eligible to run for the coveted crowns for Carrot Festival Queen, Princess or Jr. Princess.
We also have a brand-new competition this year! It will consist of three parts: Ticket sales by each contestant (45% of the total score), a speech competition (45% of the total score) and poise (10% of the total score).
Contestants will receive classes on hair and make-up, speech writing and etiquette/poise. Each contestant will also receive 25% of their total ticket sale revenue in the form of a check. This competition is designed to not only engage our young contestants, but to also reward them for hard work.
The 2019 Festival is scheduled to run from February 1st thru February 10, 2019. We are strongly encouraging all young ladies in our Imperial Valley to come and join us this year. Applications are available at the Chamber office. Deadline to register is 4PM on November 2, 2018. An informational meeting is scheduled for October 16, 2018 at 6PM in the Holtville Civic Center. For more information please call the Holtville Chamber of Commerce at 760.356.2923
