  • 2010 QUEEN PAGEANT FACT SHEET

    DETAILS: This year’s pageant features 45 exceptional young women

    from all over Stark County, competing for the crown as 2010

    Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Queen.

    The 2010 Queen Pageant includes contestants from: Akron,

    Alliance, Canton, Hartville, Homeworth, Louisville, Massillon, North Canton, North Lawrence and Waynesburg.

    ATTENDANCE: More than 1,000 attendees will file into the Palace Theatre on Thursday, May 13, at 7 p.m. to enjoy the area’s premier

    pageant.

    ELIGIBILITY AND

    SELECTION PROCESS: Each year, the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival chooses a Queen and the number of Court Members to coincide

    with the number of the new class of Enshrinees who will be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Queen and Court Members

    are chosen on the basis of personality, poise, beauty, communication skills, academic achievement and service to

    community.

    Eligible contestants are between the ages of 18 and 23, must

    reside and, if employed, work within a 30-mile radius of Canton. Candidates must be free to appear as the Queen or as a member of the Court from May 14 to September 1, 2010, and

    then until such a time as the 2010 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Queen is crowned.

    QUEEN AND COURT RESPONSIBILITIES: The Queen and Court serve as role models and ambassadors

    for the Stark County community, and participate in activities with local civic organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Turnaround Community Outreach Center, Stark MRDD and many

    more. Most importantly, the Queen and Court are expected to join in promoting the welfare of our community and stressing

    to others the importance of volunteerism.

    The Queen and her Court also greet a great many guests at the

    18 events throughout the 11-day Enshrinement Festival, attended by more than 700,000 people. One of the most

    memorable experiences for the Queen and Court is their ride on the float in the nationally televised Timken Grand Parade.

    CONTESTANT PRIZES: In addition to the prestige of being crowned 2010 Queen of the Enshrinement Festival Pageant, the Queen has the opportunity to receive two scholarships. If the Queen chooses

    not to receive these scholarships, they are then offered to the Court Members on a lottery basis. The Queen and her court

    keep all of the outfits worn throughout the Enshrinement Festival, and they receive many gift cards from area restaurants, and gift bags and services from area spas.
