INTERESTED IN BECOMING THE 2013 FESTIVAL QUEEN?
The 2013 Miss Florida Seafood will be selected by judges that are not from the area and have no knowledge of the contestants besides their Pictures and Names on this webpage. The Seafood Festival Board of Directors has NO influence on the result of the pageant. Those eligible to participate are: junior and senior girls for the 2013-2014 school year who are residents of Franklin County, 16-18 years old and have never been married or had a child and cannot be pregnant.

The Festival Board awards a five hundred dollar ($500) scholarship to the Queen.

In addition to the Florida Seafood Festival parade, Miss Florida Seafood attends several festival parades in surrounding counties to help promote Franklin County seafood and the Florida Seafood Festival. The Festival Board maintains the Queen's float. However, drive and vehicle must be provided by the Queen to the various events. Also the Queen is responsible for the storage of the float during her reign.

The Queen also makes several personal appearances (TV, radio, etc.) to promote the Florida Seafood Festival and Franklin County seafood. Attendance at events on Festival weekend will be required. Schedules will be announced later.

Each contestant must pay a $100 entry fee that is to be obtained from one sponsor. Your sponsor will be noted in the local newspaper along with your name and photograph.
