 A scholarship pageant that celebrates confidence, character and community 

Young women build confidence, learn valuable interview skills, and make new friends during two weeks of summer fun leading up to the competition. Plus, they get to explore our mint heritage on a mint farm tour and are guests of honor in the Grand Mint Parade!


The Mint Queen and her court represent the Mint Festival at special events, parades and community service opportunities throughout their year-long reign. You can spot them soon at an event near you!
