Since the first Dogwood Festival, the Dogwood Queen has been selected every year to honor the young women of Phoenixville and to highlight our community’s commitment to community service.
This year, please join the Phoenixville Jaycees Foundation and special partner Soroptimist of Phoenixville in honoring these special young women as we celebrate their accomplishments, honor their community service, and Crown the 2018 Dogwood Queen.
Through a partnership with Soroptimist of Phoenixville we have been able to provide a unique experience for the candidates this year. Their Dream It, Be It curriculum has brought a focus on goal setting, career exploration and leadership skills to the program. The generous sponsorship of Soroptimist has allowed the scholarship to expand.
Each applicant will prepare a community service project idea, which includes a professional presentation on the project scope.
Scholarship Program Presentations:
When: Wednesday, May 9th at 7pm
Where: The Colonial Theatre: 227 Bridge St, Phoenixville
The Queen will be crowned at Dogwood Festival on Tuesday, May 15th at 6:30 PM at the Jaycees Bandshell.
Candidates will present their project to a panel of both Jaycees and Soroptimist Board members who have worked with the girls throughout the process.
