Do you know someone who would make a great Tulip Queen? The City of Albany is seeking nominations for the 2016 Tulip Queen and Court!
Part of an Albany tradition that stretches back nearly a century, the Tulip Queen and her four Tulip Court members are chosen by a committee of local leaders through an extensive interview process.
After the Queen is crowned at the annual Tulip Festival, the five young women will spend a full year working together on community outreach programs and educational initiatives in Albany.
Nominees must have a strong sense of community, be knowledgeable of the Albany area and its history, and possess leadership skills. Eligible nominees are women between the ages of 18 and 23 residing in Albany County for their entire year of reign (May 2016 – May 2017).
The Tulip Queen will be awarded a $5000 scholarship, and each court member will receive a $1500 scholarship award upon completion of the program. To nominate an extraordinary young woman in your life, visit their 2016 nominee form.
