Lil’ Miss Pumpkin Queen Program

2013 Pumpkin Queen Dakota BowenThis year we continue a new tradition in Grover, North Carolina with the Grover Pumpkin Festival. The past two years we started another tradition one of crowning a Pumpkin Queen for our festival. Just like last year we are going to limit our contestants to girls who attend Grover Elementary School, Pre-K through 4th grade. They will have the opportunity to win great prizes such as: a crown, sash, a space in the Grover Christmas Parade and more.

Summary of the Program

We will be looking for young girls to participate in our Lil’ Miss Pumpkin Queen program that will kick off October 1, 2014 and run through the Grover Pumpkin Festival. Each girl will be featured during the festival with the winner of the Lil’ Miss Pumpkin Queen being determined on money collected with each penny equaling a vote. Each contestant can begin collecting donations on October 1, 2014 and continue through Thursday, October 23, 2014.

We encourage each participant to ask family and friends to donate to her jar throughout the month of October. Donations do not have to be just pennies. All money collected goes directly to the Town of Grover for beautification projects, which could include areas around Grover Elementary School.

Deadline to submit money collected is Thursday, October 23, 2014. Please submit money to the Grover Town Hall, 207 Mulberry Road, Grover, NC 28073.
