Start Your Engines

23 04 2011

Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines!”  It’s that time of year again when we prepare to celebrate the Indianapolis 500.  It’s always a huge festival when IndyCar comes to town and it lasts throughout the entire month of May.

As part of the celebrations, several hundred young women from across the state of Indiana gather in Indianapolis to compete for the Indianapolis 500 Festival Queen and Festival Princesses.  This year, I had the opportunity to judge who would be crowned the queen for 2011.  The field of hundreds was narrowed down to just 33 women.  Each of these women already held the title of Festival Princess, but it was my job, along with an esteemed panel of judges, to distinguished who was the best representative for queen. 

This round included an in-depth interview with each of the contestants.  We were all blown away and anxious for round 2 that will be held on April 30th when each of the girls gives a presentation!
