Bavarian Princess Application

2017 Princess applicationDownload the 2017 Princess packet here

As a 2017 (or later) graduate of Frankenmuth High School, between the ages of 18 and 25, we are excited to extend this application to you. Please complete the questionnaire and return it with a wallet size photo of yourself, no later than March 11th, 2017.  The photos will be for identification purposes only.

Being a Bavarian Princess is not only an honor and a privilege, but also carries considerable responsibility. You will be representing the people of Frankenmuth at many functions throughout the state during the entire year following coronation in June. This will include appearances during the weekend of the Bavarian Festival, but also events such as the National Cherry Festival in Traverse City, Holland Tulip Festival and many others . In addition, events in Frankenmuth,  such as Oktoberfest and Zehnder’s Snowfest are among the most important.

Most of the activities are scheduled for weekends and are considered mandatory.  Any additions to this schedule, are not considered mandatory, but are highly recommended.  Please make sure you consult with your parents or guardians before committing to the application process as they will play a large role in your activities.  There will be a meeting immediately following the tea for the three chosen women and at least one of their parents or guardians.  This will be held in the same location as the tea.  The Civic Events Council also recognizes the time and dedication the Bavarian Princess Court is asked to give during their reign, therefore educational scholarships are being offered.

The preliminary judging segment of this competition will be a Candidate’s Tea to be held on Saturday, March 18th, 2017 in the Swiss Rooms at Bavarian Inn Restaurant. The event will begin at 9:00 am. The Princess Selection Committee has asked community leaders to judge the candidates. The judges will use this opportunity to become acquainted with the candidates before selecting the three finalists through the interview process. The candidates will be judged on the basis of personality, poise, appearance and knowledge of Frankenmuth.

We thank you in advance for your time and commitment, and wish you the best!
