Covid-19 Important Update

Due to concerns surrounding Covid-19, the Inver Grove Heights Scholarship Program Board of Directors regrets to announce that we will suspend our candidacy program for those seeking to become our next class of Inver Grove Heights royalty until 2021. In addition, we will be cancelling our coronation program scheduled for September 2020.

This was a very difficult decision for our board, but we felt it was in the best interest in order to keep everyone safe. We have asked our current 2020 royalty to stay on for the next year and we are grateful that this have accepted this role.

We look forward to resuming regular activities as soon as we can and encourage potential candidates for 2021-2022 to apply on our website, www.missigh.com.

Thank you for your understanding,

Queen’s Weekend – St. Paul Winter Carnival

For the kickoff of St. Paul Winter Carnival, I was fortunate to represent Inver Grove Heights at Queen’s Weekend. During this four day event, we had 97 ambassadors visiting from all over Minnesota and Wisconsin! We had a full weekend that included saying farewell to the 2019 Winter Carnival Royal Family at their coronation and meeting the wonderful 2020 Royal Family. We played around at the science museum, met the Vulcan crews from the past years, created our own paintings, and attended the Grande Day Parade!

This was a very memorable weekend full of a lot of smiles, minimal sleep, and various snacks! My two favorite parts of this entire weekend would be being able to see and hug my Inver Grove Heights royal family at the coronation and being able to walk the parade and interact with the excited crowd!

Princess’s Dance

On February 7th, my royal sisters and I attended the Princess’s Dance at the Inver Grove Heights Community Center. We had dinner, played games and did crafts before the dance started. We also got our photos taken in the photo booth and so did all our Dads. The DJ played some slow songs and all the girls got to dance with their dads. At the end we took a picture with all the little princesses.

Sponsor Visit: Caring Hearts of Minnesota

On January 21, 2020, I dropped off the rest of the items for my first community service project. My community service project was where you can donate pretty much anything to Caring Hearts of Minnesota, and they will give it away for free to people that need it.

My target was to get to 500 items and we collected more than 700 items! The organization that I went to was in Farmington. I meet with a lady named Fran who was more than happy to receive all the stuff that I collected. I just want to say thank you to all my friends and family that helped my reach my goal. I’m so happy to know that I am helping people in need.

Sponsor Visit: Quality Auto Care Center

I have been honored to be sponsored by Quality Auto Care Center throughout my candidacy and now my reign. It is very important to me that I show this business how much I value their continued support. Around the holidays I stopped in and visited with the owner, Bruce. We talked for quite a while and he told me all about the new things that have been happening there since my last visit. Bruce is such a personable guy and when you stop in he truly makes you feel like family. The fact that he took time out of his busy schedule to make time to meet with me really shows how much he cares about his community. I look forward to the rest of the year and he is one of the special people that have made that happen for me.

Saint Paul Winter Carnival Royal Promenade Fashion Show

On Saturday, January 18, my Royal court and I went to the Saint Paul Winter Carnival Royal Promenade Fashion Show. We saw all of the wonderful Candidates for Queen of the Snows model all of their beautiful outfits. We had the opportunity to get to know some of them by mingling and talking to them. We saw the current 2019 Winter Carnival Royal Family show off their beautiful outfits as well. We had a wonderful luncheon right before the fashion show which was delicious. We looked around at the different booths that were displayed with wonderful items. My Royal Court and I had a wonderful time. Thank you to everyone who made the fashion show happen. It was wonderful ! Thank you again to everyone who made that event possible.

Saint Paul Winter Carnival Queen of Snows Candidate Dinner

On January 09, I had the privilege of attending the Queen of Snows Candidate Dinner. At the dinner, I got to meet the candidates, the current royal family, and various past members of the winter carnival. It was astonishing to see how involved and passionate each individual involved in winter carnival was! I am going to miss the 2019 royal family, but I look forward to spending time with the 2020 family!

Salvation Army Bell Ringing

On December 29, my Royal Court and I did the Salvation Army bell ringing at Cub Foods. We got outside and already people were putting money in the bucket. We thought it would be fun if we sang Christmas songs and made up our own fun little dances for some entertainment, so we did so. We attracted people with our singing and dancing and just having smiles on our faces. We enjoyed raising money for a good cause. My Royal Court and I hope that this money helps the many people in need.
