2019 Azalea Queen Maya Francis

The 2020 Azalea Queen pageant committee is preparing to have its first organizational meeting and the next order of business is to get our 12 contestants from Madison County’s finest young women.

Due to space and time, only the first 12 applicants will be accepted. There will only be an exception if the 12th and 13th applications arrive by mail on the same day. If your organization or business would like to sponsor a candidate, please complete the application located in next week’s issue of the Democrat News, and MAIL it with your $100 entry fee. The application can also be found online at www.azaleafestival.info. Any applications received after the first 12 candidates will be returned by mail to the sponsor. The entry deadline is February 7, 2020.

Please ensure that your candidate understands she MUST participate in all functions and rehearsals, regardless of personal, school, or work conflicts. The pageant committee will try its best to work with school schedules, but rehearsal dates cannot be changed. Failure to participate in all functions could result in disqualification.

Contestants will be required to reside in Madison County (verification may be requested from the sponsor), attend the organizational meeting (February 16), attend the Azalea Tea (Date TBD), attend ALL rehearsals, ride in the Azalea Parade, be a sophomore, junior, or senior in high school, and sell advertisements for the pageant program. No prior contestants will be allowed.

Rehearsals will be Sunday, April 26, in the afternoon. There will also be rehearsals on Monday April 27, Tuesday April 28, and Wednesday April 29, in the evening.

The pageant will be at 7 p.m., Friday, May 1. The 2020 Azalea Queen Pageant will feature local performers entertaining on stage. We will also welcome back the 2019 Azalea Queen Maya Francis!
