Young women interested in becoming Pepper Fest candidates should attend an informational meeting at Pepper Fest Park in North Hudson on Thursday, May 17, at 5:15 p.m.

Kathy Wente, long-time Pepper Fest candidate coordinator, is joined by Jenna Evenson, 2001 Pepper Fest Queen, as the new duo of candidate coordinators. "We have a fun summer in store for sophomore girls who are interested in becoming members of the 2013 North Hudson Pepper Fest Royalty!" The young ladies chosen to represent North Hudson Pepper Fest as queen and princesses will serve during their junior year in parades and other public appearances as goodwill ambassadors for the North Hudson community. The queen will receive a $500 scholarship and the princesses will receive a $400 scholarship.

Potential candidates are encouraged to find a sponsor due May 23, 2012. Sign-up forms are available in the Hudson High School Guidance Office and will be available at the informational meeting. An official candidate and parent meeting will be announced at a later date.
