The City of Albany is seeking nominations for the 2019 Tulip Queen and Court.
The tradition, which dates back to the 1940's, invites members of the community to nominate young women who have a strong sense of community, are knowledgeable in the Albany area and its history and possess leadership skills.
The 2019 Tulip Queen will serve as Albany's ambassador for one full year and will be crowned at the Tulip Festival on May 11th.
Nominees must be between the ages of 18 and 24 and reside in Albany County for their entire year of reign.
The Queen will also be awarded a $5,000 scholarship and each member of the court will receive a fifteen hundred dollar scholarship.
Nominations are due by April 5th.
