The 2019 Apple Blossom Festival Royalty will be receiving more scholarship dollars. The Wenatchee Applarians contributes to the Queen scholarship fund and raised the award from $6,000 to $10,000. Apple Blossom Festival Donors contribute to the Princess Scholarships. The scholarship awards for both Princesses will be increased from $3,500 to $5,000 each.
“This has been a long time coming” says Festival Administrator Darci Christoferson. “With the increase of college tuition and with the number of hours our Royalty put in to represent our community, the Board of Directors and the Wenatchee Applarians felt the increase needed to happen. Once again this community has stepped up to support this Festival and we couldn’t be prouder”.
